Water Security in Cities? The Role of the Natural Infrastructure

In a new scientific study, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) identifies 25 of Latin America’s most at-risk cities where investing in source watersheds upstream can cost-effectively increase water security for 100 million people. The report builds on previous TNC research about natural infrastructure, watershed conservation and their relationship with sustainable water management in cities.
