Mission:

WaterRising Institute is a woman-led nonprofit, advancing water preservation and purification projects in global coastal communities with an emphasis on addressing portals through which plastic waste is flooding the ocean, building awareness of the global climate and water quality crisis, and advancing gender parity in the water and oceans science professional sector.

Vision:

The planet’s “water cycle” is changing rapidly due to climate change, we must be able to respond urgently to the growing risks, placing water at the center of governmental and private sector policy and investment agendas. Innovation to advance water protective infrastructure along with leadership development with adaptive policies and measures is a critical component for all resilient infrastructure ecosystem projects.

I. Water Woman Project: “Empowering water heroes to shift our relationship with our water ecosystem”

WaterRising Institute believes that a resilient water system is possible when women get to the table. The shift to women will shift the system. When shifting collectively, women will change our relationship with water.

Globally, there has been enormous momentum on gender parity. If we translate that into action for a healthy ocean, we have a chance of tackling the crisis facing the largest life-sustaining ecosystem on the planet.

“A resilient world by 2030 is a world where human beings and the planet find a balance in which all thrive and survive.”

– Deputy Secretary General UN Amina Mohammed

Water Resilience is essential to business performance and sustainability.

 

While some corporate water stewardship progress has been made, these strides are not moving quickly and often reflect superficial activity without real impact.

We must infuse behavioral change (information, control and motivation) into the corporate culture in order to embrace transformational water stewardship.



Transformational actions are needed to address our most pressing water challenges:

 

1-Moving beyond risk mitigation to understanding the growth potential of transformational water stewardship.



2- Working together, across silos and with gender parity, to create business ecosystems the produce collective action to scale

 

3- Invest in women to have a seat at the table
