Progress on Transboundary Water Cooperation - Global baseline for SDG indicator 6.5.2

Cooperation over transboundary rivers, lakes and aquifers is critical to ensuring that water resources are managed in an equitable and sustainable manner, and the achievement of SDG6 (water). Transboundary waters also create social, economic, environmental and political inter-dependencies that make cooperation a precondition to sustainable development, peace and security.  As the only target in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that makes explicit reference to transboundary cooperation, target 6.5 can play a catalytic role across multiple SDGs and targets.  It can generate multiple benefits for the protection of human health, renewable energy provision, sustainable agriculture, climate adaptation, ecosystem protection, and peace and security.T

his publication presents the results of the initial reporting exercise on indicator 6.5.2 carried out in 2017-2018. It offers valuable insights into the progress achieved in establishing operational arrangements for transboundary waters, and the gaps that remain; and highlights that an acceleration in strengthening transboundary water cooperation is urgently needed to be able to face growing water challenges and prevent conflicts on water use.

This report is part of a series that track progress towards the various targets set out in SDG 6 using the SDG global indicators.

A healthy link: The Protocol on Water and Health and the Sustainable Development Goals

Water, sanitation and health are at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 1999 Protocol on Water and Health is a powerful tool to promote and operationalize the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. With its strong integrated and intersectoral approach, its focus on prevention and on the whole water cycle and its attention to safety and equity aspects, the Protocol’s provisions and principles fully align with SDG 6 “clean water and sanitation”, SDG 3 “good health and well-being” and other water, sanitation and health related targets.

The Protocol’s planning and accountability approach offers a practical framework for Parties to translate the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda into specific national targets and action addressing the key underlying challenges of the sustainable development such as weak governance, intersectoral cooperation and capacity.

The present brochure provides an insight on the linkages between the Protocol and the 2030 Agenda and outlines how the Protocol mechanisms and tools can support countries in achieving the water, sanitation and health related SDGs.

World Water Development Report 2018: Nature-based Solutions for Water

The global demand for water has been increasing at a rate of about 1% per year over the past decades as a function of population growth, economic development and changing consumption patterns, among other factors, and it will continue to grow significantly over the foreseeable future. Industrial and domestic demand for water will increase much faster than agricultural demand, although agriculture will remain the largest user overall. The vast majority of the growth in demand for water will occur in countries with developing or emerging economies.At the same time, the global water cycle is intensifying due to climate change, with wetter regions generally becoming wetter and drier regions becoming even drier. Other global changes (e.g., urbanisation, de‐forestation, intensification of agriculture) add to these challenges.

The United Nations World Water Development Report, Nature-based Solutions for Water, launched 19 March 2018 during the 8th World Water Forum, and in conjunction to the World Water Day, demonstrates how nature‐based solutions (NBS) offer a vital means of moving beyond business‐as‐usual to address many of the world’s water challenges while simultaneously delivering additional benefits vital to all aspects of sustainable development.

NBS use or mimic natural processes to enhance water availability (e.g., soil moisture retention, groundwater recharge), improve water quality (e.g., natural and constructed wetlands, riparian buffer strips), and reduce risks associated with water‐related disasters and climate change (e.g., floodplain restoration, green roofs).Currently, water management remains heavily dominated by traditional, human‐built (i.e. ‘grey’) infrastructure and the enormous potential for NBS remains under‐utilized. NBS include green infrastructure that can substitute, augment or work in parallel with grey infrastructure in a cost‐effective manner. The goal is to find the most appropriate blend of green and grey investments to maximize benefits and system efficiency while minimizing costs and trade‐offs.

Progress on Water-Use Efficiency – Global baseline for SDG indicator 6.4.1

Few countries have the natural and financial resources to further enhance water supplies for human use. The alternative is to use the available resources more efficiently. The global indicator on water-use efficiency tracks to what extent a country’s economic growth is dependent on the use of water resources, and enables policy- and decision-makers to target interventions at sectors with high water use and low levels of improved efficiency over time. This indicator addresses the economic component of the target 6.4. In this report, you can learn more about the baseline situation for water-use efficiency. More information and the metrological guidance can be found at: http://www.fao.org/sustainable-development-goals/indicators/641/

Progress on Level of Water Stress – Global baseline for SDG indicator 6.4.2

The global indicator on water stress tracks the level of pressure that human activities exert over natural freshwater resources, indicating the environmental sustainability of the use of water resources. A high level of water stress has negative effects on social and economic development, increasing competition and potential conflict among users. This calls for effective supply and demand management policies. Securing environmental flow requirements is essential to maintaining ecosystems healthy, resilient and available for future generations. This indicator addresses the environmental component of the target 6.4. In this report, you can learn more about the baseline situation for water stress. More information and the metrological guidance can be found at: http://www.fao.org/sustainable-development-goals/indicators/642/
