As the world considers how to re-build our health, solidarity, and caring for each other, we are easily reminded that we all share one source of water.
Managing our waters is a task for everyone, and GWP will continue to promote and support good water management practices, participatory decision making, as well as building and flexing “cooperation muscles” in societies. GWP has a long and successful history in bringing together civil society, government, and the private sector in working toward a water secure world.
As long as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, particular focus will be on:
- keeping attention on the water security agenda and on climate resilience;
- convening participatory approaches – including mobilising those whom the COVID crisis is pushing aside - working across and beyond the water space;
- developing pragmatic water solutions for (re)building public health and economies, with particular attention to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and emergency protocols, and;
- Learning and collaborating online and through our network, consisting of 3,000+ Partners, including, importantly, Cap-Net UNDP.
GWP will also reach out to its Partners and stakeholders at country and water-shed level to see where we can be of assistance, offering our network, our insights, and our skills.
