Sustainable Water Partnership: Delivering Stability and Benefits through Water Security

Convenor(s):
Winrock International

Water security has emerged as a core social and economic development area over the last five years. This session will present the new USAID-funded Sustainable Water Partnership (SWP) programme. SWP intends to promote water security as a cross-sectoral theme essential to improve public health and livelihoods, alleviate poverty, encourage economic growth and promote political stability.    SWP will first present the water security improvement process developed from worldwide best practices and the expertise of the implementing team. Toolkits have been developed to disseminate and democratize the process and encourage its adoption by policy makers, water managers, and local leaders around the world.    The session will first encourage audience review of the water security improvement process, and then hold a couple of panels sessions to discuss the importance of water security within the context of overall development, with the connections to food and energy security, environmental sustainability, socio-economic development and overall governance.    Keynote panelists will represent private sector interests, donor perspectives, scientific knowledge, as well as development expertise.    The session will also provide the opportunity for the SWP members to learn from the audience on specific examples and approaches to help contribute to overall knowledge generation to help achieve the SDGs.
