The Nature’s Pride Foundation has partnered with IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative, with the aim to design a methodology for international value chains to positively engage with high water stress catchments.
Around the world, water challenges are increasing as weather patterns change and the global population and consumption continue to grow. Often times, many hundreds, or even thousands of actors –both public and private– use water from the same catchment. Addressing water challenges requires coordination among all of them. This has proven to be no easy task.
During the last quarter of 2020, this methodology has been trialled in Ica, Peru and the development of the process and responses from key stakeholders have been positive. The Nature’s Pride Foundation and IDH aim to bring this methodology for understanding water catchments and the approach for positive international stakeholder engagement to further maturity and engage stakeholders in the European market in 2021.
