The Sustainable Development Goals highlight the importance that the global community places on water and there is increasing demand for innovative and effective approaches to water management. With widespread competing demands on water, maintaining environmental sustainability and meeting the needs of the most vulnerable members of society must both be addressed. The OECD provides policy guidance on water to OECD members and non-OECD countries, covering a wide range of issues.
The established Roundtable on Financing Water aims to accelerate action to scale-up financing for water investment which contributes to sustainable growth.
