Summary

Water is crucial for human sustenance, health and dignity; as a driver for business; for food and energy security; and for the ecosystems upon which our societies and continued development depend. For this report, prepare as input to 2015 World Water Week – themed Water for Development – we (SIWI) have invited a wide range of experts with different perspectives on water and development to share their thinking and propose new avenues for development.
