This report tracks a rich and diverse portfolio of programs around the world that have found creative ways to finance safe drinking water and instream supplies and to address water risks and dependencies, such as drought, flood, soil erosion, receding glaciers, storm-induced landslides and even wildfire. It sates that climate risk adaptation and mitigation are increasingly cited as a driver of watershed investment, and observes little movement from the private sector to tackle their water-related risk.

The overall report aims to provide an accurate snapshot of the scale, size, shape, and direction of investments in watershed services worldwide. A second objective is to provide detailed design and project analysis that informs smart decision-making among policymakers, local communities, conservation organizations, private businesses, and other natural resource managers.
