CHALLENGES

In the face of increasing demands for water, exponential population growth, and a changing climate, our water needs have never been greater. The United Nations, alongside the SWRF, prioritizes clean water and sanitation as one of the essential Sustainable Development Goals. Water touches every aspect of human life. It is the nexus where agriculture needs meet human rights and gender equality meets urban planning. Recognizing the mounting challenges of water needs, the SWRF seeks to build a future in which development and responsibility come hand in hand and water is a ubiquitous human right.
