Abstract: "In all countries, a challenge for water advocates and water resource managers, as well as national policymakers and the broader development community, is to ensure that sustainable water resource management supports the achievement of national development goals. Too often, the contribution of water to broad development goals is not well understood at the political level outside the water sector, and, as a result, actions needed unlock this contribution are not identified and prioritised. To rectify this, the contribution of water to various sectors of economic and social life needs to be recognised and good water management needs to be given the appropriate priority by those sectors. For this to occur, not only do water sector practitioners need to engage with national development planning processes but also managers of development planning processes need to ensure that water sector representatives are effectively drawn in."
