About the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme

The SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme 

The SDG 6 IWRM (Integrated Water Resources Management) Support Programme assists governments in designing and implementing country-led responses to SDG indicator 6.5.1, the degree of implementation of IWRM, as an entry point to accelerate progress towards the achievement of water-related SDGs and other development goals, in line with their national priorities. This is in direct support of the official SDG monitoring and reporting processes, and leads to measurable progress on the relevant SDG targets. 

Under the guidance of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and coordinated by Global Water Partnership (GWP) in collaboration with UNEP-DHI Centre and UNDP Cap-Net, the Support Programme brings together a unique blend of partners in each country, representing governments, civil society, academia and the private sector, in the spirit of SDG 17 on Partnerships for the Goals.
