Listen: Beyond The Buzz: The Geopolitics Of Water

In the second episode of Beyond the Buzz, we delve into the topic of water – often referred to as “blue gold.” With water disputes on the rise, the World Economic Forum ranks water scarcity as more impactful than even infectious diseases in its 2020 Global Risks Report. S&P Global Ratings’ resident water risk expert, Beth Burks, joins Corinne Bendersky and Mike Ferguson in the episode to explore the myriad risks related to water and how they may be exacerbated by climate change going forward. The trio also unpack the corporate perspective on water risk, how businesses and governments are addressing this growing threat, and the key indicators to monitor to mitigate long-term risk exposure.
