Water/ocean governance thought leadership, thematic expertise, technical support and policy advocacy promoted and strengthened globally
Description

The UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility (WGF) supports low and middle-income countries in their water reform by providing policy and technical support, developing water governance knowledge, and helping to develop institutional capacity, while also contributing to the international water governance reform agenda. More specifically WGF:
Develop water/ocean governance knowledge and expertise towards transparent, rights-based, and inclusive water resources and services management
Provide water/ocean-related technical advice and support to country offices, regional hubs, and headquarter departments, including for project development, and assist with communications, messaging, and meeting preparations related to water and SDG 6.
Track water/ocean governance-related work of UNDP, in support of reporting, messaging, and cross-programme learning.
Facilitate appropriate UNDP representation at water/ocean-related meetings and conferences, including UN-Water/UN-Oceans interagency collaboration mechanisms, and contribute to cross-UN reports and task forces in the context of UN Reform.
Provide strategic oversight, quality assurance, and support to project management and implementation at national and local levels, including country support through GoAL-Waters and Ocean Innovation Challenge endeavors.

Expected impact

Ultimately the expected impact is to improve the way that water and ocean resources are governed, managed, and used as a means of addressing multidimensional poverty and protecting people and the planet.
