CWR is a non-profit think tank that aims to create a world where water and climate risks are embedded in business and finance so that better decisions can be made today, for a water-secure tomorrow. Since its launch in 2011, it has worked from its Hong Kong base to engage with global business and investment communities to understand and manage water risks in Asia, especially China.
Today, CWR publishes proprietary research including co-authoring policy briefs with government-related bodies in China and beyond and its website still remains a “go-to” resource on water risks.
CWR has also been commissioned by financial institutions as well as listed corporates to conduct research and assessments 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. CWR is part of China’s Environmental Risk Analysis Task Force and a founding member of the Hong Kong Green Finance Association.
