Learning journey financing for water security through an IWRM approach

The SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme is inviting integrated water resources management (IWRM) professionals and experts to embark on a learning journey focused on Innovative Financing for Water Security through an IWRM approach taking place in the newly created SDG 6 IWRM Community of Practice.


What was the learning journey about? 

Building robust and innovative financing mechanisms for water security through an IWRM approach will enable sustainable and more resilient management of our precious water resources. Out of the four dimensions of IWRM, financing is lagging furthest behind in progression towards achieving SDG indicator 6.5.1 on IWRM implementation. More financing needs to be made available for IWRM approaches and implementation from a variety of sources, including public and private sector and climate financing. What financial resources are available and how can these be mobilised? Which new and innovative mechanisms need to be created to enhance IWRM implementation and ultimately water security? To advance on these key questions, the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme has organised a learning journey from June to December 2022, consisting of several webinars, discussions and expert blog posts. An outcome document of the learning journey will be made available soon.

To access all the material and discussions shared during the learning journey, interested IWRM practitioners are invited to:
