We are launching this video on March 15 in the run-up to World Water Day (March 22) when much of the world’s attention is focused on water issues.
Of course, the anniversary is not just about a video. Our 20th anniversary comes at a turning point in the global development agenda. Since its inception in 1996, GWP has advocated for water resources to be a high priority of the development agenda – because water is connected to virtually every area of human life: health, economic growth, energy, food, transport, education, ecosystems, manufacturing, even peace.
Now water resources has its place within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG #6). GWP will build on its 20 years of impact and experience by looking ahead to the next 20, working for the implementation of all the water-related SDGs – a message that is also communicated in the video. We have articulated that role in a strategic positioning paper, GWP: a key global asset.
Thank you for your partnership!
