Our Challenge & Focus

“Avoiding a real liquidity crunch, one that could impact billions of lives and cost trillions of dollars is one of our greatest challenges in the 21st century.”

Asia has limited water resources, yet water is the only resource we cannot survive without. We must create a new paradigm of ‘business unusual’ in Asia if we are to ensure the continent’s water security. Asian leaders, businesses, financiers, entrepreneurs & scientists have the opportunity to pave the way in making decisions today for water tomorrow.

Rise to the challenge and join us in “waterproofing” Asia.

WATER-NOMICS

Finding a national roadmap to more GDP on less water & less pollution by wedding economic planning to water resource management

WATER RISK VALUATION

Building consensus toward water risk valuation in credit/equity portfolios & financial decision-making to drive capital flow to responsible users

BUSINESS UNUSUAL

Regulating for a future with water will disrupt multiple sectors & global trade to forge an era of business unusual & circular economy

What We Do

“We cannot solve what we don’t understand”

CWR aims to catalyse a better understanding of the complex web of water risks to unlock innovations. We strive to be the “go-to” resource on water risks and collaborate with experts, research & scientific institutes as well as IGOs and NGOs to bring you the latest views on water & climate risks in the region.

In addition to proprietary research in our focus areas, we also co-publish policy briefs with government-related bodies in China and beyond. We engage extensively with the business and investment communities and reports we have written for financial institutions have been considered ground-breaking in the understanding of water risks across sectors we cover.
