If safeguarding our natural water resources is a high priority for you, then please consider attending a business roundtable discussion in Buffalo that brings together national and international leaders to attend the Great Lakes Commission’s annual meeting. Representing the Obama administration is Cameron Davis who is heading up funding initiatives for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (valued at over $1b since 2010). Davis will be joined by John Austin, director of Michigan Economic Center. There will also be a number of other key leaders that play a part in the nation’s struggle to establish a Blue Economy.
“Water is a huge and growing global challenge. It is essential to all human activity and a fundamental driver of socio-economic growth but, as a resource, it is under strain from population growth, development and climate change. Globally, the average return on each US$1 invested in universal access to safe water and sanitation is just under US$5, according to a report published by Frontier Economics in June 2012.” – HSBC Water Programme
