25 April 2014 - The unsustainable management of water resources, together with rising water demands and the impacts of climate change, poses significant risks to water companies and businesses reliant on agriculture (agribusinesses), as reported in a series of commentary pieces and an editorial in Nature Climate Change.


Water risks in the private sector
The collection includes case studies from around the world. Above (from left to right): (1) A sensor for soil moisture installed for the control of irrigation water for celery, Spain (2) The SABMiller barley project in India (3) Cromer pier during an east coast storm surge in the UK last winter and (4) Overview of an irrigated field in La Mancha, Spain.


The collection, which forms a focus in the May issue, ‘Water risks in the private sector’, suggests that, in light of these pressures, companies need new water strategies to succeed in the market.
