World Water Week Final Statement

The 2013 World Water Week, focusing on cooperation and partnerships, closed with a call for the United Nations to put special emphasis on water when it considers the post-2015 global development agenda.

The Stockholm statement says that water, given its centrality to individuals, ecosystems and economic development, sits at the very core of sustainable global development. Therefore, "a dedicated goal on water is necessary for a world where all people can live in safety and dignity". By the year 2030 the world must have achieved a doubling of global water productivity, a realisation of the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, and increased resilience to water-related disasters.
