The World Water Development Report 2017: Wastewater, The Untapped Resource

The United Nations World Water Development Report 2017, entitled "Wastewater, The Untapped Resource" will be launched on 22 March 2017, in English and French, on the occasion of the World Water Day.

This edition of the World Water Development Report focuses on 'Wastewater' and seeks to inform policy- and decision-makers, inside and outside the water community, about the importance of managing wastewater as a resource, an undervalued and sustainable source of water, energy, nutrients and other recoverable by-products, rather than something to be disposed of or a nuisance to be ignored.

Improved wastewater management generates social, environmental and economic benefits, and is essential to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
