One of the potentially devastating impacts of climate change is a shrinking supply of water. A growing world population and urbanization are placing greater demands on a smaller supply of water, just as droughts caused by rising greenhouse gas levels are increasing.

For many businesses–utilities and manufacturers that need water for cooling and cleaning, as well as food and beverage companies that depend on farmers for supplies–water scarcity is a particular threat. It poses risks for everything from lost revenues and a hit to their reputation to regulatory action and protests by local communities vying for access to the same dwindling resources.
