Revitalizing IWRM for the 2030 Agenda

    This paper was prepared as an input to the High-Level Panel on Integrated Water Resource Management that is organised at the 8th World Water Forum and will be held on March 20, 2018. Framed by the “Challenge Paper” of the same name published by the Task Force, the Panel will challenge water-resource policy-makers to revitalise policy for IWRM and re-think IWRM strategies in an effort to deliver strong messages from the 8th World Water Forum on how to connect pragmatically water across sectors and across the SDGs. The outputs of the discussion should be used to catalyze a sharper focus on how SDG Target 6.5 can drive transformation in sustainable water resource management, in national planning for SDG implementation, and in global-level policy dialogue and support strategies.
