Partners form an integral part of the work and scaling up of the IUCN Water Programme. Whether international or local, joining forces with partner organisations creates stronger alliances and more effective practical action at the global level and in the field.
IUCN's Water Programme brings together its extensive network of IUCN Members, experts, government and private sector partners to develop sustainable solutions to preserve our water resources. Our knowledge is based around the central theme of Implementing Sustainable River Basin Management, branching off into key components which consist of:
- Implementing IWRM using an ecosystems approach
- Good governance of water and dialogue to build transboundary cooperation and effective national and local water resource management
- Promoting sustainable and inclusive growth to improve water and food security and climate resilience
- Demonstrating natural infrastructure solutions for climate change adaptation
- Building partnerships for water infrastructure innovation in the Water-Energy-Food security Nexus
- Increasing social, ecological, and agricultural resilience of ecosystems in the face of climate change
- Supporting corporate strategies with an aim to recognise, map, and reduce water risks for wider multi-stakeholder benefits at river basin scale
WHAT DO WE DO?
The mission of the IUCN Global Water Programme is to be a trusted partner for evidence-based and adaptive change in water resource management that benefits nature and people.
