More than 40 groups of people around the world have worked on the development of their visions of sustainable management of water in their region or sector. Their reports have been published separately. This publication aims to reflect the visions of many in a single global statement. It is the product of the most comprehensive analysis of the world's water resources ever undertaken. Based on contributions from thousands of experts involved in regional, national, and sector consultations, it aims to provide an authoritative diagnosis of water resources and the pressures on them, as well as stipulating the steps that need to be taken to improve the situation.
