Below are brief descriptions about the World Water Vision and the Framework for Action

World Water Vision

The World Water Vision was initiated by the World Water Council and guided by the World Commission on Water in the 21st Century.

The World Water Vision´ aim is to develop a massive public awareness of the risks of major water problems as a result of inaction, as well as encourage innovative thinking on how these problems can be tackled. It should encourage and empower people to participate in devising and implementing solutions to these water problems. And it should generate the political commitment to turn this increased public awareness into effective action.

Framework for Action

The Global Water Partnership is responsible for the development of a Framework for Action to go in parallel with the World Water Vision. Concrete and realistic programmes of action will be needed.

While the Vision will describe possible future scenarios and indicate where to go, the Framework for Action will be a route map of how to get there. It will identify the milestones in the process and the policy measures, management instruments, investment priorities and the implementation strategy required to reach those milestones.
