Solving today’s water challenges is key to sustainable development but it has become increasingly complex due to the many sectors and stakeholders involved. Sectoral engineering approaches and economic management models alone no longer suffice to develop effective water strategies and policies. A more holistic, integrated and inclusive approach is needed to ensure the wise management and use of water, for current and future generations.
