We know AquaShares is a market design firm that works to build water resilience through transparency, trading and trust.
Less appreciated is that we are also, at root, a “risk management” company. 
We help families, farmers, and firms reduce their exposure to the volatility and uncertainties of natural and manmade threats to water.  This aspect of our work came through in a podcast organized by the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS), as described here:

Water scarcity is an ever-present risk that companies should be keeping on their risk registers. James G. Workman, the founder and VP of Business Development at AquaShares Inc., an online water savings market platform, joins Justin Smulison to discuss this increasingly important topic.

In this episode, Justin and James discuss how water is impacting supply chains, how James is seeing water risk escalate globally, his take on the recently unveiled SDG Global Acceleration Framework, how to incentivize people to save water, and how companies and risk professionals can take the lead on combating water scarcity.

James is a writer, speaker, teacher, and creator of natural resource conservation markets. He has extensively studied water and advises companies of scarcity risks. He is also the author of the nonfiction book, Heart of Dryness: How the Last Bushmen Can Help Us Endure the Coming Age of Permanent Drought.
