Innovative Water Solutions for Sustainable Development

IWMI Strategy 2019–2023: Innovative Water Solutions for Sustainable Development IWMI’s Strategy 2019-2023 responds directly to the demand for innovative, scientifically tested water management solutions for sustainable development. With offices in 14 countries and a global network of scientists operating in more than 30 countries, our research, at field to basin and regional scales, will address three high-priority water challenges:

Food – To improve food security while sustainably managing water resources and ecosystems.

Climate – To adapt to and mitigate climate change while building resilience to water-related disasters and disruption.

Growth – To reduce poverty and advance inclusion with equality as agriculture transforms, energy transitions and urbanization intensifies.

Going forward, IWMI will expand and intensify its efforts to deliver water solutions and bring about broad systemic change, and build on our extensive web of strategic alliances with fellow CGIAR centers and other national and international partners across the world.

The IWMI Gender and Inclusion Strategy 2020-2023 supports implementation of the IWMI Strategy 2019-2023, by ensuring that gender equality and inclusion are central to the Institute’s three Strategic Programs – water, food and ecosystems; water, climate change and resilience; and water, growth and inclusion – and to its fourth crosscutting program pillar on digital innovations.
