The primary data source of this data portal is the global baseline assessment on SDG indicator 6.5.1 containing database of 172 country submissions (see overview of submission status below, under section '2017 SDG 6.5.1 baseline'.
The global baseline assessment data from 2017 is supplemented with data from the two previous global IWRM surveys (years 2007 and 2011) containing self-reported country survey data assessing the progress and outcomes of the application of integrated approaches to the development, management and use of water resources. The two previous global surveys are not directly comparable with the reporting under SDG indicator 6.5.1. Nevertheless, the previous global surveys provide insight into country status of implementation across main dimensions of IWRM for years 2007 and 2011. Read more about the surveys below.
In addition data from the global IWRM surveys, IWRM Data Portal contains a comprehensive database of national IWRM policies, plans, roadmaps and related resources. All data and resources can be searched by country and are updated on ongoing basis.
