Toward global water security

While numerous American public, private, philanthropic, scientific, and academic organizations are addressing water challenges the world over, there is no explicit strategy binding their diverse activities together into a coherent whole. This is an unfortunate situation, as the United States has considerable strengths, expertise and influence in the water space.

Toward Global Water Security, a report produced by the Atlantic Council and US Water Partnership, outlines a process for forging a stakeholder-driven, “Whole of America” water grand strategy. After assessing how the United States government and other stakeholders engage on water issues abroad, the report asserts that the United States needs a water grand strategy if it is to lead the world toward a secure and prosperous future.
