Will Sarni knows water. In 2014 he wrote that the water crises fit the definition of a wicked problem requiring wickedly smart solutions. Increasingly, solutions center on the smart use of data.

On November 9 Cornerstone’s Sebastian Vanderzeil teams up with Will Sarni to explore these questions:

  • How has the “waterscape” changed over the past ten years?
  • How should investors think about the myriad of opportunities and issues surrounding water, from utilities to software, water rights to water infrastructure development?
  • How will data shape the future of water resource management?
  • What can investors do to address the challenge of meeting our water resource needs?
