Details released on Water Policy Report
In July 2020, Water Policy Group announced its intention to support the newly launched Global Acceleration Framework for SDG 6 by issuing a regular Water Policy Report. The report will identify the key issues and constraints facing governments in the development and implementation of water and sanitation policies, and contribute to policy development by providing insight, timely intelligence and peer support offered by shared experiences from across the world.
The key input to the report is a survey on the perspectives and opinions of persons who are decision makers on, or key influencers of, water policy at the national level from a wide range of countries of different regions and national income categories. The survey will be supported by an inter-disciplinary team of experts from UNSW-GWI and the research has been approved by UNSW’s Human Research Ethics Committee [HC200546].
Ministers, very senior officials and persons from outside government with significant influence in national water policy may be invited to respond to the survey, which is intended for release in 2021, early enough to inform the preparation of the World Water Development Report 2022 and events for World Water Day.
