Improve raw water quality and management

The chemical, physical and biological deterioration of water bodies (rivers, dams, lakes, wetlands, estuaries and ground water) poses a threat to economic growth, social development and aquatic ecological functioning. This facet of the water crisis requires #AllHandsOnDeck to address point source and diffuse pollution, technologies, financial flow and functionality of systems and people to ensure that raw water quality is protected.
