IWRM Action Plan Searcher

Using the key challenges to IWRM implementation identified in the SDG 6.5.1 reporting process, the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme aims to facilitate a government-led multi-stakeholder process to formulate and prioritise appropriate responses to those challenges. The result is typically an IWRM Action Plan (the name might be adapted for each country), which constitutes a series of attractive investment opportunities to systematically guide the implementation of solutions to IWRM challenges.
