[High Level Panel] Global Dialogue on Water Security and Sustainable Growth

· Coordinator :
Global Water Partnership(GWP)
· Co-Coordinator :
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

A secure water world is emerging as a top human development priority in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. But to truly deliver secure and sustainable water for all, policy makers need sound evidence connecting water security to economic growth and development.

The Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) launched a Global Dialogue for Water Security and Sustainable Growth to promote and accelerate a transition to water security, by connecting policy makers and practitioners through Country Consultations, and through a Task Force analysis of the links between water security and sustainable economic growth.

A major Report prepared by the Task Force of economists and academics, led by the University of Oxford, concluded that water resources play a defining role in economic development between and across sectors. Investment in water security is not only a matter of protecting society from specific water risks, it is an investment in enabling economic growth.

A High Level Panel of Vice Presidents, Ministers, and representatives of the World Bank, NGOs, and the business sector, under the leadership of Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia and patron of the GWP and Mr Angel Gurria, OECD Secretary-General, will release the milestone report on "Securing Water, Sustaining Growth" and a Policy Statement calling for enhanced action.
