Project ongoing since: 2018 • The Center for Water Security and Cooperation


RENEWAL is a water security and WASH legal platform dedicated to ensuring your country is committed to a water secure future.


See the RENEWAL platform (link below).

Location of main activity


Why did we create RENEWAL?
The Center for Water Security and Cooperation created the RENEWAL platform to:
- set forth a new vision for water security and WASH law,
- elevate, advance, and strengthen water security and WASH law, and
- create a forum for stakeholder collaboration in the development and implementation of water security and WASH law.

Why does law matter?
Laws are a commitment. Laws create the foundation for the actions we take and decisions we make about water security. Law is how we know that sanitation services protect public health and the environment, that drinking water is clean to drink, and that water resources are being equitably and sustainably protected and managed to meet communities’ current and future needs. Without a strong commitment, our future with water remains uncertain.

How can this help with your work?
Better laws enable and accelerate the achievement of water and sanitation sector goals. For water security to be achieved, water security and WASH laws must be available, understood, and acted on. Stronger laws support and facilitate work to increase access to water supply and sanitation and to equitably and sustainably protect and manage water resources to equitably meet communities’ current and future needs.

What information is currently available?
The platform currently covers five countries in Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, and Zambia. Existing analyses discuss the ten nexuses governing water security: 1) Agriculture; 2) Energy; 3) Infrastructure; 4) Natural Resources and Services; 5) Natural and Manmade Disasters; 6) Sanitation, Drinking Water, Health and Hygiene; 7) The Global Economy; 8) Peace and Conflict; 9) National Security; and 10) Governance.

The Center for Water Security and Cooperation works to advance water security and cooperation by understanding, evaluating and innovating in water security and WASH law and governance across the world. Law creates the necessary enabling environment for eliminating the release of untreated wastewater and pollutants into the environment, for managing our water resources equitably, and for increasing access to safely managed water and sanitation. We work to understand the role and effectiveness of existing laws in advancing access to safely managed water and sanitation and water security and to work with stakeholders to transform their legal infrastructure.
