UN SEC GEN called for wide consultation and participation in working towards the 2015 SDGs. Lots of parallel processes – e.g. World we want online consultation The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) that took place from 20-22 June 2012 suggested an Open Working Group on the SDGs. The OWG has members from the 5 regional groups. Reported in June/July 2014.
Korosi criteria: Number = X% + Active Verb (e.g. “strengthen”) + objective (e.g. food).
Ph 1 – Swiss aid. Ph 2 DANIDA aid 1,200 participants overall Csaba KŐRÖSI, Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Hungary to the United Nations (note that he is also the chair of the Friends of Water Group) 2013
UN-Water report submitted Feb 2014. GWP a member. TA was the basis for the Consultations.
A governance framework needs to be in place that addresses requirements at all levels so that progress can be made towards meeting national targets.
In summary these consultations strongly reinforced the need for a dedicated water SDG is not just needed – it is fundamental for the post-2015 sustainable development framework. This sentiment is so strong in the consultations that the debate for stakeholders is now about 1) How to frame national targets and indicators, and 2) How to enable countries to realise a dedicated water goal
Synthesis report by the UN Secretary-General to be published in NovemberUN Secretary General&apos;s synthesis report outlining a broad vision and to form the building blocks of the post-2015 development agenda. The report will draw. among others, the report of Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing, Open Working Group&apos;s proposal for sustainable development goals (SDGs), the report of the President of the General Assembly (PGA) on the four structured technology dialogues, and the outcomes of the special events organized by the PGA over the course of the 68th GA session. The intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda are expected to commence at the beginning of 2015 and to culminate in the adoption of the post-2015 agenda at a concluding summit September 2015. Member States have still to agree on the negotiation modalities and on the modalities of the High Level Summit.

The MDG’s only included water supply and sanitation.
For a water SDG need more comprehensive targets:
Water resources management
Disasters, floods, droughts
Water for environment

OWG co-Chaired by Csaba Kőrösi, Permanent
Representative for Hungary at UN
Consultations based on UN-Water “Technical advice”
prepared for the OWG with GWP participation.
National consultations facilitated by GWP on water in
the future development agenda
UN-Water Technical Advice to OWG
Proposed a dedicated Goal for water:
Securing sustainable water for all
Proposed 5 potential targets:
Achieve universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and
Improve by (x%) the sustainable use and development of water
resources in all countries
All countries strengthen equitable, participatory and accountable
Reduce untreated wastewater by (x%), nutrient pollution by (y%)
and increase wastewater reuse by (z%)
Reduce mortality by (x%) and economic loss by (y%) from
natural and human-induced water-related disasters
National Consultation Outcomes
Broad consensus that a dedicated water goal is
fundamental within the post-2015 development agenda
to address poverty and inequalities
The goal proposed by UN-Water fits well with national
“A dedicated global goal offers a unique opportunity to
ensure water for people, economies and environmental
needs, while conserving the Earth’s finite and vulnerable
water resource base for current and future generations”
Global targets and national plans
Strong support for comprehensive and inter-related
targets that further advance integrated approaches to
water management and use
Call for alignment between global and national goals,
targets, policies and development plans
“national policy and plans must take into consideration outputs
of global dialogues (e.g Agenda 21, Rio Conventions,
Johannesburg Plan of Implementation).” Romania
“Implementation of the State Water Policy to 2030 would enable
the realisation of the EU Water Framework Directive objectives
including realisation of the SDGs after 2015.” Poland
The need for a goal and targets is obvious - the real
challenge is implementation.
The SDGs are an opportunity to adopt new
implementation pathways, with greater stakeholder
“To include public participation, consultation and active
involvement is useful and necessary. At the local level
there is a lot of historical memory and the transfer of
knowledge between generations should not be ignored by
politicians and experts.” Slovenia.
Institutions need to be strengthened to deliver results
across the broad water spectrum
Improving individual and institutional capacity will be key
to achieving the future development agenda;
Institutional coordination remains a challenge, especially
in circumstances where there is a capacity deficit.
“strengthen cooperation between sectors and agreement
at national and local level.” Slovenia
“lack of coordination is the main problem of water
management and will impact the effectiveness of future
SDG implementation at the national level. Poland
Financing and Investment
New infrastructure and rehabilitation/O & M for existing
infrastructure will require substantial investment to meet
the proposed targets
“Politicians now speak of water but this has not translated into
budgets. Difficult to estimate scale of investment needed to meet
the targets but roughly estimated at USD$30 billion.” Bulgaria
Climate change adds to the demand for scarce
“Damage arising as a result of climate change is usually much
larger than the investment for preventive measures. Adaptation
could also bring new opportunities as water resources is a basis
for economic and environmental investments.” Slovenia
Value of the Consultations
Participants expressed their appreciation for the
opportunity to critically look at the future development
agenda in the context of their own development
The consultations have:
Helped countries look towards the future and where they
want to be in terms of water-related issues by 2030;
Created a platform for broader ownership of and influence
on the global development agenda beyond 2015; and
Supported governments in their consideration of water in
the SDG negotiating process.
Outcomes from the UN General
Assembly meeting September 2014
Water included as dedicated Goal 6 by the OWG:
“Ensure availability and sustainable management of
water and sanitation for all”
Goals and targets proposed by the OWG recognized as
the key input and framework for the political negotiations
However, presently too complicated and needs to be
UN-Water has set up Task Teams to look at monitoring
and reporting on water targets under Goal 6.
Still a risk of major changes
Keep up the political pressure
