For more than five years, P&G has been partnering to understand water risk across its value chain. This showcase will briefly introduce the risk assessment process and results used by P&G to identify priority basins. The session will then focus on engaging with participants to help P&G answer the question: "Now what?" The discussion will focus primarily around basins within the countries of Mexico, China, India, and the United States. Attendees are encouraged to come ready to discuss overlapping priority areas and ideas for how to protect water for people and nature.

Gold standard events are committed to ensure the gender balance in speakers/panellists and young professional representation in the session.
