The WFN Foundation has filed for bankruptcy and expects to go into receivership in early September, citing ‘overwhelming financial problems’. The WFN wa founded in 2008 ‘to solve the world’s water crisis by advancing fair and smarter water use’.
While the WFN will no longer exist as a legal entity, its mission – to promote the transition towards sustainable, fair and efficient use of freshwater resources worldwide – remains as important and relevant as ever, explains executive director, Dr Christopher Briggs.
“In light of those shared ambitions, collaboration between our partners in the spirit of Water Footprint Network’s mission will continue. Our partners are seeking and finding ways to keep the work going.
The Water Footprint Research Alliance which has been hosted by WFN Foundation, has announced its determination to intensify effort in research, education, capacity building and outreach in the field of water footprint assessment.
