Water Resources Management

Water resources management encompasses the efforts of stakeholders to protect freshwater ecosystems that provide drinking water. USAID helps partner countries better cope with rising pressures on water-stressed river basins by engaging with stakeholders to develop water allocation plans that secure the availability of water for households, improve storage and quality of water through sustainably managed watersheds, and promote adaptive innovations to build resilience and reduce water-related risk. This collection page features a variety of technical, multimedia, and learning resources showcasing water resources management’s vital role in strengthening global water security.
