The business community has a key role to play in responding to COVID-19, rebuilding the economy, and preventing and mitigating future shock events — both broadly speaking and specifically regarding water. This second in the Pacific Institute’s Business Framework for Water and the COVID-19 Pandemic issue brief series continues to explore the role of businesses in a robust COVID-19 response, outlining how businesses can contribute to a “blue” economic recovery and help make society more resilient to future shocks. A robust economic recovery goes hand in hand with water stewardship. Investing in drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene saves lives, aids climate change mitigation and adaption, and brings economic benefits.
