Guidelines on Water 2022-25
The Guidelines on Water 2022–2025 substantiate the principles of the Foreign Policy Strategy 2020−23 and the IC Strategy 2021−24 in relation to the foreign policy thematic priority of water. The structure is framed by the five key objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. The guidelines are part of the third level of the cascade of core foreign policy documents. They are primarily aimed at the FDFA but may also provide guidance for other departments and actors. A glossary explains the key terms.
