Tuesday - 11:00 - 12:30

THEME

Governance

ROOM

Room 28

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-89]

The SDGs demand that IWRM is implemented at all levels by 2030, including transboundary as appropriate. In just 12 years following the 8th World Water Forum, IWRM must deliver benefits for billions of people by seizing synergies across sectors and goals relating to, among others, food and energy systems (the “WEF Nexus”), climate change, sustainable cities, gender equity, clean seas, ecosystem conservation and peace and security. This session will build on conclusions about revitalization of IWRM practice, to raise questions of how policy and investment frameworks for IWRM need to change to increase the scale and speed of results from IWRM. Participants will identify key policy innovations for IWRM in the 2030 Agenda.
