The blue economy globally

Not only in the Hudson, but globally, the management and restoration of water resources is a complex field and a hot economic activity, one that challenges finance, policy, and technology to imagine ways of valuing this public good that is often privately held and powerfully contested.

Maude Barlow’s BLUE COVENANT lays out a clear and informed thought process on global water resources.

Inventive nongovernmental organizations are creating people-to-people frameworks for directing resources to improve water access in the poorest countries.

But the long-term preservation of water resources at the source requires strong policies.  Water is a key asset to be preserved and restored as a focus for Rio + 20, and some see it as the next emerging arena for carbon markets.
