Water is critical for each of the Sustainable Development Goals, from the eradication of poverty and hunger to ensuring equal access to water and sanitation services. To encourage further cooperation and partnership to achieve water-related goals and targets, the UN will launch a Water Action Decade on World Water Day (22 March) in the General Assembly Hall. Over the next 10 years, the Decade will highlight solutions for better and more sustainable management of water resources to improve social, economic and environmental objectives.
The decade will commence on World Water Day 2018 and end on World Water Day 2028.

World Water Development Report
The WWDR is an annual and thematic report that focuses on different strategic water issues each year and aims to provide decision-makers with the tools to implement sustainable use of our water resources. It also includes regional aspects, hotspots, examples and stories, making the report relevant to a broad range of readers, at different levels and in different geographical areas.
The development of the WWDR, coordinated by the World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP), is a joint effort of the UN agencies and entities which make up UN-Water, working in partnership with governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders.
