Charting Our Water Future—this report by the 2030 Water Resources Group empowers and offers advice to help governments address conflicting water demands. It presents a new, more holistic way of looking at the water sector by weighing the needs of various users, including cities, rural communities, agricultural and industrial producers, and health care providers. It also increases the ability of decision-makers to determine which actions may yield the best results.

Led by IFC and McKinsey & Company, the 2030 Water Resources Group has unveiled a methodology in the report that fosters greater water-sector transparency through a fact-based analysis framework on the economics of technical measures.

The report analyzes four countries with drastically different water issues—Brazil (São Paulo state), China, India, and South Africa. These countries will collectively account for 42 percent of projected global water demand in 2030. The report uses the new methodology, which assesses supply- and demand-side measures, to identify new solutions that could constitute a cost-effective approach to closing the water-resource gap in each country.
