This new report from the World Bank addresses the importance of using water as a path toward resilience and stability. The report identified three mechanisms linking water insecurity to fragility: (1) failure to provide citizens with water services; (2) failure to protect citizens from water-related disasters; and (3) failure to preserve surface, ground, and transboundary water resources. For water security to continue to be central to poverty reduction efforts and development, water-related investments need to increasingly address compound risks arising from fragility, conflict, and violence.
