Catalyzing water for sustainable development and growth

The report is not formally mandated; rather it is an independent evidence-based analysis of how water can be addressed in a development agenda beyond 2015. The purpose is fourfold: to help inform global goals that are being established for beyond 2015, and to support informed decision-making by governments; to demonstrate points of convergence and divergence between different water perspectives beyond 2015; to provide an overarching framework that can be used to understand water goals and targets, and be equally applicable to understand other goals and targets, and needs for environmental integrity, human development and economic growth beyond 2015; and to understand the type of water investments required after 2015. It forecasts what might be needed in terms of financial investment, governance and capacity, and examines what these needs imply for implementation.
