Series: Water - Scarcity and Solutions

Tags: world water day, sustainability, water scarcity


We are today asking for thought leading submissions for consideration for CSRwire’s Talkback Series in March where we will be exploring water.

What insight, expertise, innovation, challenges, best practice or thought provoking water issues can you share? 

The impact of availability of clean water to society cannot be understated. The growing pressure to better manage this increasingly scarce resource is climbing to the top of many sustainability megatrend reports. Global water stress will impact us all regardless of geographical location as the effects domino through everybody’s supply chains. 

“Water is at the core of sustainable development. Water resources, and the range of services they provide, underpin poverty reduction, economic growth and environmental sustainability. From food and energy security to human and environmental health, water contributes to improvements in social well-being and inclusive growth, affecting the livelihoods of billions.”– UN Water

March 22nd will also see the United Nations World Water Day hit the headlines and a wave of debate about how to create further progress.

CSRwire wants to share our community’s thought leadership and opinion on examples such as… 

  • Which businesses are leading the charge on efficient water footprint management?
  • What are the emerging collaborative models helping avoid conflict?
  • Is water security really an issue for the developed world?
  • Will technology save the day – what innovation is on the horizon?
  • Is it sustainable to produce bottled water?
  • Will water follow (or overtake) carbon as the next big pricing battleground?

If you think you can write 500 words or more that adds tangible momentum to a knowledgeable audience, then get that laptop fired up. We can't guarantee publication, as we're continually pushing our own editorial bar higher every day. If your article doesn't make it on to our flagship Talkback channel with all the core spotlight we shine, there is a good chance it could be published on our parallel CSRlive channel, Justmeans or Social Earth for the world to see.

To submit your article please send your article, with suggested title, as a Word document to editor@csrwire.com with 'Talkback: Water - Scarcity and Solutions' in the subject line, to include a short bio, headshot photo and any accompanying imagery with appropriate rights clearly available.

There is no specific deadline for articles as we are always happy to receive inspirational content, but anything received after 20 March 2015 may miss the main promotional spotlight across our communities until the end of that month.

We will be promoting the April Talkback focus on Innovation in more detail in mid-March. Stay tuned for more.
