The political, social, economic and administrative systems in place that influence water’s use and management. Essentially, who gets what water, when and how, and who has the right to water and related services, and their benefits.
By improving water governance, WGF seeks to contribution to a world which shares and allocates its water sustainably, equitably and efficiently, making it universally available to meet everyone’s basic needs.
The Water Governance Facility (WGF), the long-standing collaboration between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has been in operation for ten years.

The partnership between UNICEF and the Water Governance Facility at SIWI aims to provide UNICEF and UNDP WASH staff with the tools and guidance on accountability they need to achieve improved governance and thereby help shape programmes to deliver increased sustainability.
