We are happy to share the good news that a number of water professionals have taken the initiative to make a fresh restart of the Water Footprint Network (WFN). Details will be made public as soon as the legal and institutional arrangements have been made.
The ‘old’ WFN Foundation has formally been declared bankrupt on 11 September, after a long struggle to maintain financial stability and lessen the weight of increasing debt to both creditors and staff. A trustee has been nominated by the court to manage the bankruptcy for the organisation, close down its operations and secure any available funds in order to pay creditors.
While the new WFN is being set up, we will continue our efforts to advance research, education, awareness raising, capacity building, applications, outreach and exchange in the field of Water Footprint Assessment. We count on your continued support!
