The publication "Water: Meeting the Reform Challenge" is a call for action and a guide to getting the basics of water policy right. Sustainable financing, solid governance, and policy coherence: those are the key pillars, the building blocks for successful water reform.
Water is one of the world’s most precious resources. And today, cities, farmers, industries, energy suppliers, and ecosystems are increasingly competing for their daily water needs. As a result, the costs of inadequate water management are becoming higher and higher. And not just financially – but also in terms of lost opportunities, compromised health and environmental damage.
The OECD launched a flagship report which sets out OECD’s three-pronged approach to making water reform happen focusing on sustainable financing, effective governance and policy coherence.
