Water is essential to sustain life and economic development, and the livelihoods of the poorest people are critically associated with access to water services. The sustainable management of water resources has acquired a new urgency in the face a global population
expected to reach nine billion by 2050, economic development spurring demand for more and better food, and increased hydrological variability caused by climate change. Sustaining water for all in a changing climate reaffirms the strategic directions for the World Bank Group’s approach to supporting water resources management. [authors abstract]
