The SDG 6 IWRM Stage 1 Support Package

The aim of the Support Package is to explain how the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme can assist the facilitation of multi-stakeholder processes aiming to update the SDG 6.5.1 survey, providing tools and guidance to that effect.

The second round of reporting on SDG indicator 6.5.1 is taking place in 2020. In January 2020, UNEP, as the custodian agency for SDG indicator 6.5.1, sent out an invitation to all UN Member States to repeat the survey assessment in order to update that SDG indicator, with a deadline of May 15th, 2020. In that communication, UNEP offered the support of the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme to countries that require it. The Support Programme has committed to assisting at least 60 countries in this endeavour, as it did in 2017 for 36 countries. The support is to be provided by GWP, which will agree with UNEP on the countries to be supported.

The Support Package is made up of a Process Guide and the following annexes which are open for public consultation. Additional annexes exist to request financial support, and will be made available upon request to
