Stockholm statement: A call for a sustainable development goal on water

A statement calling on upon the United Nations and its Open Working Group to propose a Sustainable Development Goal on Water, as an outcome of broad consultations prior to and during the 2013 World Water Week in Stockholm. It considers increased resilience to water related disasters, such as floods and droughts, through comprehensive risk management, sustaining healthy ecosystems and improving water quality, as prerequisites for the provision of safe water, food, energy and other basic needs for people and societies in the future we want.
