By 2030, it is estimated that 47 percent of the global population will be living in high water stress areas. The authors of this book survey common organizational (both public and private) responses to water scarcity across three categories–technology-based, policy-based, and management-based–and then focus on the latter as holding the most promise for creating a robust, organization-wide solution for potential freshwater scarcity. Management-based responses are those developed within the organization to internalize water-related externalities.
