The 2030 WRG requested the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) to develop a framework for effective collaborative action in water management at the (sub) river basin level. This led to a contribution to the national and global dialogue about shared water risks and multi-stakeholder water stewardship. Evidence shows that such collaborative efforts are not yet common practice, not yet in India, but also not elsewhere. This Collective Action study determines success and failure factors and effective tools or mechanisms to facilitate multi-stakeholder engagement processes in India based on the identified global and domestic case studies.
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.
