The Water, Peace and Security Initiative (WPSI) is pioneering the development of innovative information tools and practical approaches that can support evidence-based actions to reduce water-related security risks. We take up the challenge to turn global data sets and local knowledge into meaningful information that can support preventive action. These tools will provide early warning signals showing where and when risks may be on the rise. Next, decision-support tools and approaches will be used to facilitate evidence-based responses that will increase resilience and reduce water-related risks.
Insights from these information tools will be used to effect timely, evidence-based, and negotiated actions. To do this, we will engage with key stakeholders at global, regional and local levels, such as governments, investors, international organisations, CSOs and the private sector. Training programmes will be designed to meet the needs of those willing to act.
