Out of the four dimensions of IWRM, financing is lagging furthest behind in the progression towards achieving the 2030 target. With a global score of only 46 (out of 100), it is lagging behind the other dimensions by about 10 per cent and remains a barrier to accelerate implementation of IWRM. Also, as one of the five “accelerators” of the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework, it is vitally important that the world water community focuses on accelerating financing to boost achievement of the water-related SDGs and thus contribute to water security.
