It is about the empowerment and enrichment of world’s populations who expect for and non-profit leaders to look beyond the horizon to technologically and ethically protect the watersheds that sustain life. Through “the power of two in one alliance,” that this water alliance offers, transformative, timely water stewardship can be both aspirational, risk-adverse, and actionable.
