Focus Area Topic

Governance & Finance

Strong governance, financing, and institutions are critical to helping countries transition away from donor assistance in the water sector.

Why it Matters

Sound governance is essential to achieving water security. National governments must make water and sanitation issues a priority, while both national and local governments must create enabling environments that will improve drinking water and sanitation service delivery, improve water sector coordination, mobilize investment, and incentivize management of water resources.
