Water for development: charting a water wise path

Source(s):  Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI)

This report - prepared as input to the World Water Week 2015, the world’s most important annual meeting for water and development issues - tackles the issue of water for development and takes stock of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and move towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The topics addressed in the report include: the MDG progress and the future SDGs and the role of water in (and for) them; the need for more reduction of risks and disasters for improved water security; and the role of Information Communications Technology (ICT) for water and development. The report also features a view on the corporate perspective on water and development; as well as the important role of improved use of rain to provide for increased food security and poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa.
