16 February 2018: The Global Water Partnership (GWP) has launched an interactive map depicting its project outcomes around the world. The projects can be viewed by region, country, and year of completion.
GWP projects address integrated water resource management (IWRM) in terms of actions to create or provide an enabling environment; financing; institutions and participation; and management instruments. Projects listed include those at the country or sub-national level, as well as at the global, regional and transboundary river basin levels. Projects featured on the map can be found in Latin and South America, Africa, Europe, and most of Asia.
The map allows for “impact stories” and case studies to be linked to the project locations depicted. Projects can also be viewed by themes, covering climate, gender, transboundary, urban, youth, and nexus issues.
Water, when managed well, is an enabler of inclusive, sustainable growth, and a solution to issues of poverty, disaster risk and climate change.
Launching the map, GWP Resource Mobilization and Partnership Manager Nicolas Delaunay emphasized that water, when managed well, is an enabler of inclusive, sustainable growth, and a solution to issues of poverty, disaster risk and climate change.
The GWP has an overall vision of achieving water security and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through better governance and management of water resources. [GWP Press Release] [GWP Interactive Map]
