Since its launch in 2011, CWR has worked from its Hong Kong base to engage with global business & investment communities in understanding and managing water risks in China & across Asia so that better decisions can be made today for a water secure tomorrow.
Today, CWR leads the water risk conversation with proprietary research including co-publishing policy briefs with government-related bodies in China and globally. Their website www.chinawaterrisk.org remains the “go-to” resource on water risks. CWR has also been commissioned by financial institutions & corporates to conduct research analysing the impact of water risks across various sectors. Such reports have been considered ground-breaking and instrumental in understanding China and Asia’s water challenges. They also widely co-convene and deliver keynotes/panels at events with various IGOs, Chinese ministries, industry associations and universities including the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize Seminar.
CWR (China Water Risk) is a non-profit initiative of the ADM Capital Foundation.
