UNEP-DHI Centre has partnered with the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), to produce the SDG IWRM Baseline status report for the Arab region. The report finds that national efforts supported by bilateral, sub-regional, and regional cooperation initiatives over the years have helped Arab countries implement elements of IWRM. Most, however, are unlikely to meet Target 6.5 at current rates of implementation. Most countries need to set targets in line with national priorities and capacities to encourage action on the ground to further progress.
