This report presents some exciting results in 2030 WRG countries, where a lot of progress has been made in the past year. The team has worked hard to facilitate the process and discussions that were needed to identify focus areas where projects and programs will soon take shape. 2030 WRG, now operating in its second phase, continues to build and foster valuable partnerships amongst relevant key stakeholders to achieve a more water secure future. Bringing transformative change to water resources planning is a complex process. By facilitating open, trust-based dialogue processes with all stakeholders, key priorities have been collectively identified and agreed upon in many of our countries of engagement.
The 2030 Water Resources Group is a unique public-private-civil society collaboration. We facilitate open, trust-based dialogue processes to drive action on water resources reform in water stressed countries in developing economies. The ultimate aim of such reforms and actions is to close the gap between water demand and supply by the year 2030.
Our global partners include bilateral agencies and governments (Sida, SDC and the Government of Hungary), private companies (Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Grundfos, Dow, Ab InBev), development banks (IFC, the World Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank), INGOs and IGPs (UNDP, GGGI, GWP, the Forum, BRAC and IUCN). The 2030 WRG was launched in 2008 at the World Economic Forum and has been hosted by The World Bank Group since 2012.
