IUCN’s Water and Nature Initiative is set to improve water management for healthy rivers and healthy communities.

Safeguarding water resources and the ecosystems that provide and depend on them is critical. Ecosystems are the back-bone for water services. They ensure that safe, reliable and renewable water supplies are available to people for health, agriculture and economic security. In a rapidly changing world, integrated management of water resources and fair water use and distribution are essential for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction.
