WASAG – The Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture


Since the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG) was born in 2016, it has been formally established, endorsed and supported at various international instances. A primary objective of WASAG is to support countries and stakeholders in their commitments and plans related to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, with particular emphasis on SDG 6 ‘Clean water and Sanitation’ and SDG 2 ‘Zero hunger’. WASAG also contributes to the attainment of SDG 1 ‘No poverty’, SDG 3 ‘Good health and well-being’, SDG 5 ‘Gender equality’, SDG 12 ‘Responsible consumption and production’SDG 13 ‘Climate action’, SDG 15 ‘Life on land’, and SDG 17 ‘Partnerships for the goals’.

As a fast-growing network of more than 70 partners, WASAG has quickly gained momentum in order to jointly address the increasing pressure of global change impacts on water scarcity in agriculture.
