SDC's Water topics

For more than 40 years, SDC has supported partner countries in the development of their drinking water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and in strengthening their watershed management practices. Promoting an enabling political environment (policy and advocacy), leveraging partnership for large scaling-up, stimulating innovatives approaches, concepts and technologies and encouraging knowledge generation, management and exchange are key features of our work under the umbrella topic of the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). More recently SDC has explored new fields such as water diplomacy and security and water economics.
