WSA Melbourne Workshop

Responding to the global water challenge:
leadership, risk management & best practice

Today water security is seen as one of the most significant challenges facing the global community. We are witnessing the growing number of organisations developing water stewardship strategies to identify potential risk at the enterprise level.

Until recently no intentional standard existed. The AWS International Water Stewardship Standard has now been designed to be an international, ISEAL-compliant, standard that defines a set of water stewardship principles, criteria, and indicators for how water should be stewarded.

Water Stewardship Australia (WSA)
WSA is the Asia Pacific regional organisation leading development, adaptation, implementation and promotion of water stewardship as part of the global Alliance of Water Stewardship umbrella.
