MARSEILLE, France — The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), a global multi-stakeholder organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use of freshwater globally, released the first draft of its International Water Stewardship Standard at the World Water Forum in Marseille, France, according to a press release.

The AWS Standard, which is now open for public input, aims to support water users in taking appropriate actions to evaluate and improve their impacts on watersheds, stated the release.

It aims to build on other water related tools, helping users to reduce their water risk and generate social, environmental and economic benefits, according to the release.

The draft Standard focuses around four principles: Water governance, water balance, water quality and important water area, noted the release.
