FRESHWATER PARTNERSHIPS TO FACILITATE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Goal 8: Develop a global partnership for development

Efforts toward securing sustainable freshwater resources should bring together a range of different stakeholders such as community members, governments and the private sector. This diversity of stakeholders encompasses a wide spectrum of expertise, including hydrologists and climatologists, engineers and planners, ecologists and sociologists, lawyers and diplomats. The establishment of partnerships is necessary. This is equally evident at the international level – ranging from age-old river basin agreements to the most recent multilateral environmental agreements.
