Christmas Wishes For The Next Five Years
by China Water Risk 15 December, 2016
This year the CWR team has all sorts of wishes that will keep everyone busy for the next five years. Dawn writes to Santa asking for less stuff but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean no to presents. On the topic of presents, Hongqiao wishes that people and brands would take responsibility for their electronic presents/products. Current procurement methods for critical raw materials in these devices are causing rampant pollution. Think twice before your next purchase. This time of year is always filled with food, drink and merriment. Woody takes a look at exactly how thirsty beer, crisps & chocolate are. Meanwhile, Hubert plays with trees with the World Resources Institutes Global Forest Watch Tool. How are China’s forests doing? Given the current diametrically opposed global views on climate change, Asia needs to step up their game. After attending two key climate conferences, Feng wishes for more finance for adaptation, especially in APAC. Just this week China released its 13FYP for the environment. It also so happens that this year China Water Risk turned 5 years old. It’s been a whirlwind but we are happy to report that “water risk” has now become the new norm. Debra takes a look at how far we have come and what we have achieved. Plus, check out our grand wishes for the future. We are excited and hope you are too. Happy Holidays from the China Water Risk Team!
