For sustainable, inclusive
access to water.

The stakeholders involved in water management are community leaders, government agencies with jurisdiction over water resources and water and sanitation services, academic institutions, research and innovation centers, water roundtables and steering committees, private companies with social and water responsibility programs, trade unions, aid agencies, financial institutions that invest in water and sanitation projects, and civil society organizations.

By 2030, there will be systems for universal and sustainable access to water and sanitation that can withstand the effects of climate change.

• Spaces for dialogue across sectors and with community leaders were created.
• Community leaders’ and government officials’ abilities to improve water management were strengthened.
• OCSAS were organized into associations.
• Water management information was systematized to support decision-making.
• Access to innovative technologies was expanded for vulnerable groups.
• Important water-rich ecosystems were protected.

• Social innovations, such as water roundtables and spaces for multi-sector dialogue involving community leaders, were promoted; water information systems were developed; pilot technologies were tested to solve problems related to access to water in vulnerable communities.
• Business innovations were implemented, facilitating private sector investment to restore water-rich ecosystems, closing the gap in access to water and sanitation in vulnerable communities, and helping OCSAS strengthen existing social enterprises and develop new ones to ensure sustainability.

• Community leaders received advocacy training so that they could become part of the debate, analysis, and policy formulation process as it relates to water
management.
• Participation and investment from the private sector were promoted in order to restore and protect water sources and expand access to water and sanitation.
• Advocacy efforts were carried out so that governments and partners provide enough investment to ensure sustainable water management, especially in vulnerable communities.
