World Bank – South Asia Water Initiative Phase II (SAWI)

The South Asia Water Initiative (SAWI) is designed to support countries improve and deepen transboundary dialog, enhance the basin and water resources knowledge base, strengthen water institutions, and support investments that lead to sustainable, fair and inclusive development.

In achieving its objective, SAWI adopts four guiding principles. These include: promotion of an integrated water resources management approach encompassing adaptation to climate change; a focus on enhancing transboundary cooperation in water resource management to deliver mutual benefits; engagement of the broadest possible range of perspectives in water management, both across disciplines and across diverse stakeholders; and emphasis on the importance of focused debate to pose questions and guide analyses and to ensure transparency, legitimacy and accountability.
