The world faces a growing tragedy of water but a sustainable and just water future is still within reach. The Global Commission on the Economics of Water is redefining the way we value and govern water for the common good. It is co-chaired by Mariana Mazzucato, Professor at University College London & Founding Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose; Ngozi Okonjo-iweala, Director-General, World Trade Organization; Johan Rockström, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research; and Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Senior Minister, Singapore. The Commission is convened by the Government of the Netherlands and facilitated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
