Local governments are central in managing one of the world’s most valuable resources: water. Indispensable for a city's social and economic development and the well-being of its inhabitants, water must be managed effectively and efficiently. As world and urban populations increase and resource demand rises, not a drop can afford to be wasted. 

ICLEI provides guidance on integrated urban water management and good governance in the water sector, as well as the adaptation of urban water systems in response to climate and other global changes.

By supporting local governments to carry out their water sector roles and responsibilities in a sustainable manner, ICLEI helps them to achieve the sound management of water resources within and beyond city boundaries.
