“The International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development” is a timely and significant initiative. This decade is expected to advance cooperation and partnerships at all levels and put a greater focus on sharing good practices and providing a platform for advocacy and networking. The Decade, together with the global frameworks of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, provide a solid framework for supporting the implementation of water related targets and goals.”
