Nature for Water is purpose-built to help sponsors of watershed investment programs such as local utilities, government agencies and NGOs reach their technical objectives by providing gold-standard technical assistance.

The initiative is jointly managed by The Nature Conservancy and Pegasys, two partners who share deep experience in rolling out over watershed investment programs across the globe. The initiative aims to support 40–60 place-based engagements over a four-year period, while simultaneously open-sourcing tools and learnings to mainstream NbS within the broader water sector.

Nature for Water is generously underwritten by the Dancing Tides Foundation, LGT Venture Philanthropy, the Africa Scale-Up Fund, and other donors.
