At the end of the event, WaterLex launched Waterpreneurs. Waterpreneurs supports the scaling-up of impact investment finance for the growth of local water entrepreneurs who contribute to the realisation of the human right to water and sanitation. The WaterLex Business & Human Rights programme generated the idea of Waterpreneurs in 2015. Waterpreneurs is the coordinating mechanism that brings together businesses and non-profit organizations, based on shared interests. In water-stressed areas, Waterpreneurs advises corporations to add a human rights-based approach to their work, especially if their business has an impact on the local environment and water supply. For more information please see the Waterpreneurs website.
