On the occasion of the 2023 SDG Summit in New York, 18-19 September, the Transboundary Water Cooperation Coalition calls Member States and all relevant stakeholders to act to protect and better manage transboundary waters in all basins and connected coastal systems worldwide.
We are happy to announce the 5 winners of the gender case study competition, launched in June by GWP and the #IWRMActionHub. The case studies demonstrate how gender equality and inclusion have been improved in water management and climate resilience actions in the Pan African region.
This year, World Water Week broke with traditional themes by showcasing innovation for a ‘water-wise world’. The foremost annual water conference brought more than 15,000 participants to Stockholm – physically and virtually – to rethink how we can responsibly manage water with the aid of innovation. With more than 20 events as well as a booth, GWP played its part in putting water at the centre of development.
Water managers often claim that more funding needs to be invested in water security. While that is undoubtedly true, it is also true that water managers could do better in terms of spending the budgets that are already allocated to them.

To inspire action, amplify the voices of women in water and accelerate change, GWP and the #IWRMActionHub are launching a call for success stories and case studies that demonstrate how gender equality and inclusion have been improved in water management and climate resilience actions in the Pan African region.
Over the past year and a half, GWP has been proud to work alongside committed partners in the water and sanitation sector to ensure that the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA) includes how climate-resilient water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services can be integrated in the Framework’s ‘water’ theme.
Recognising the urgent need to address transboundary water management challenges, GWP has joined forces with more than 40 governments, international organisations, international financing institutions, NGOs, academia and research centres under the Transboundary Water Cooperation Coalition.
Between April and October 2023, UN Member States will take stock and report their progress on implementing the integrated water resources management (IWRM) target under the SDGs. GWP, through the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme, will assist countries in facilitating multi-stakeholder consultations to assess and report on their progress on SDG indicator 6.5.1.
