The 2030 WRG raises awareness about the water scarcity challenge among high-level decision-makers to support in-country activities. We leverage our global network of multi-stakeholders to develop knowledge products showcasing international and local best practices in the area of water resources management. Such studies help water sector professionals and government officials harness solutions, expertise and investment. These materials enable our stakeholders to understand the immense challenges in order to respond with inclusive and transformative water resources management solutions.
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 (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 IFC since 2012.
