WFNThe 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.
