The credit impact of water management risks will increase, as growing demand for water strains supplies and climate change exacerbates scarcity in regions with high water stress, as Moody’s discussed in a recent research report. Eight sectors with nearly $2 trillion in debt face high inherent exposure to these risks, which encompass non-climate-related issues associated with water, such as access, availability, efficiency, pollution, and pricing.
As the financial and social costs of inadequate water management practices become more evident, understanding the effect of these risks on companies, governments and other debt-issuing entities has never been more important.
Join a panel of Moody’s analysts, climate experts to explore the following topics:
- How is climate change exacerbating water supply-demand imbalances?
- How do water management issues translate into credit risks for issuers?
- What measures can governments and companies take to build resilience?
