SUSTAIN works in partnership with governments to support implementation of water, land, environmental, biodiversity and growth policies. SUSTAIN aims to help local and national governments to meet their goals for integrated land and water planning that leads to effective action on SDG implementation (see figure). SUSTAIN supports the relevant priorities for action set for example by basin water agencies and regional administrations to ensure that the initiative is able to facilitate demand-driven partnerships with civil society and business. The initiative is helping to build capacities in local and national governments for the landscapes approach, integrated natural resource governance and inclusive green growth.
