Water quality trading is widely seen as a promising tool that offers a
flexible, cost-effective approach to reducing water pollution. But it has
been consistently hindered by a lack of demand for credits. Over the past several months, we have been partnering with the National Network for Water Quality Trading (NNWQT) to map potential demand for both agriculture-generated water quality credits and stormwater credits. Take a look at our results here and in this interactive StoryMap. You can also find a summary in the NNWQT's *Priority Actions for Advancing Water Quality Trading (co-authored by Ecosystem Marketplace).

Offsetting and Aviation: Ready for Takeoff?

As negotiators prepare to announce final decisions about which offsets to use, voluntary carbon market participants have questions. Take a look at this Q&A piece and infographic about what to expect.
