September 2011, through the 2030 Water Resources Group, the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) submitted a report to the Planning Commission of India titled National Water Resources Framework Study. The primary purpose of the report was to find the evidentiary basis for proposing reforms in the water sector and write a report that could serve as an input into the deliberations for the 12th Five Year Plan.
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.
