About the 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG)

The 2030 WRG is a unique global public-private partnership, with a mission to facilitate collective action on water between governments, the private sector and civil society, to help countries achieve water security by the year 2030. To meet its objectives, 2030 WRG acts as a multi-stakeholder platform for action, bringing governments, financial institutions, non-governmental organizations and companies together to work towards a water secure future.

Starting in January 1, 2018, the World Bank Water Global Practice will host the 2030 WRG, which has hereto been hosted by the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group. With the arrival of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, including Goal 6 for Water and Sanitation, a new strategy for the World Bank Global Water Practice has been developed in 2017. This strategy has a strong focus on scaling partnerships for action, including in water resource management. In June 2017, it was agreed by the Governing Council of the 2030 WRG to move 2030 WRG to the World Bank’s Global Water Practice for its third phase of activity 2018-2023.

As a central part of this transition, the World Bank is now seeking a Program Manager and two Senior Water Resources Management Specialists for Asia and Africa to take the partnership within the 2030 WRG team forward.  The World Bank Group is committed to achieving diversity in race, gender, nationality, culture, and educational background. Individuals with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply.

Thank you kindly for your help in distributing these vacancies further within your relevant networks.
