In 2013 governments and companies invested $9 million in the implementation of natural solutions to keep supplies clean and abundant water in the world. According to a new report by Ecosystem Marketplace Forest Trends, this funding - supporting healthy watersheds naturally filter water, mitigate floods, and perform other critical functions - benefited more than 7 million homes and restored and protected a total of 365 million hectares, an area larger than India.
