While 31 percent of the Brazilian GDP and 22 percent of the country’s population are concentrated in the State of São Paulo, the region has been under severe water stress in the last few years, threatening water availability for human supply and economic activities.
The São Paulo State Secretariat of Sanitation and Water Resources and the 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) signed a memorandum of understanding on July 3rd, 2017, to design and implement various initiatives that will promote water security in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
Based on stakeholder consultations, two initial priority areas and multi-stakeholder work streams are under investigation and are expected to be defined in the coming months: Industrial Reuse and Sustainable Financing of Water Infrastructure.
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 IFC since 2012.
