Natural Capital Accounting: Informing Water Policies

Water security is at the core of several national development plans and sustainable development goals (SDGs): access to clean water and sanitation (SDG 6), and as an input to food security (SDG 2) and energy (SDG 7). Increasing demand and competition for water requires better information to direct investments and maximize benefits for all. Natural capital accounting can provide indicators to help policy design, monitoring, and cost-recovery strategies.
