Global dialogue on measuring water now open

With less than a year to go until the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are finalised, policy makers are now turning their attention to the issue of implementation. So how might global Goal(s) on water sustainability be operationalised at local, corporate and national levels?

Measure What Matters invites you to take part an online global dialogue focused on strengthening and aligning water reporting frameworks at the corporate, national and global levels.

Based on new research carried out by Measure What Matters, we are seeing that water reporting frameworks are becoming increasingly fragmented and disconnected from each other. As a result, it is becoming more difficult for decision makers at the local, national, global and corporate levels to make informed choices about how to manage water in a more sustainable way.

The purpose of the dialogue is to understand the case for aligning water reporting frameworks across different levels of operation (global, national, corporate, local); and to gather practical recommendations for how greater alignment can be achieved across the scale.

We need your expertise!

The dialogue will gather perspectives from business, civil society, policy and research. We will feed the results directly into the implementation working groups for the Sustainable Development Goals, discussions at the national level on alternative GDP measurements, and consultations for strengthening corporate reporting.

The online water dialogue is available here. Please also see our one-page guidance note on taking part in the water dialogue.
