2021 Progress on Integrated Water Resources Management

The UNEP is launching the 2021 global progress report on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) implementation

A seminar is organized on Monday 20September 2021 to discuss the key findings and next steps. It will be repeated in two sessions:

Three key messages from the report: 

  • The global rate of IWRM implementation urgently needs to double to achieve target 6.5 by 2030. 
  • 107 countries are not on track to meet target 6.5, but many have shown that real and rapid progress is possible. 
  • Strengthening political will for IWRM implementation – at all levels and across sectors – is critically needed to prioritize IWRM as an enabler for so many other SDGs.  

Watch the video on key messages.
