AWS & GPSNR Secretariat Webinar: Pathways Towards Good Water Stewardship in Sustainable Natural Rubber Production

27 June 2022

On 22 June, Yayasan AWS Indonesia on behalf of the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) and Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR) has successfully held a webinar for GPSNR members to launch the ‘pathways toward good water stewardship in the natural rubber sector’ report. The Pathways report and the webinar addressed the critical topics for good water stewardship uptake in the natural rubber sector, which are: the main drivers for building a strong business case for water, the priority topics on water as part of GPSNR’s Policy Framework and the opportunity to improve performance on water at site and catchment level and make credible claim through AWS Standard certification by the natural rubber sector.

Improved performance on good water stewardship, as defined by the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS by the natural rubber sector would support sustainable production, increase the sector’s resilience to water-related risks and increase the sector’s role as a good water steward at catchment or landscape level.

To respond to the growing water risks in agriculture and work towards stronger actions on water in the natural rubber sector and to build business resilience and improve sustainable production, AWS and the GPSNR Secretariat collaborated in the ISEAL Innovations Fund project ‘Boosting sustainability practice and performance at the landscape level through good water stewardship’ project by developing a strategic document called Pathways towards good water stewardship by the natural rubber sector.
