About us

World Bank Water Data is your source for all water-related open data at the World Bank. Here, you will find datasets and applications generated or compiled by the Water Global Practice.
As the world’s largest multilateral source of financing for water in developing countries, the World Bank works closely with partners to achieve its vision of “A Water-Secure World for All" centered on three interrelated pillars:
  1. Sustain water resources
  2. Deliver services
  3. Build resilience
Supported by the Global Water Security & Sanitation Partnership (GWSP)*, the World Bank works to advance five priority themes where action is critically needed to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for water: sustainability, inclusion, institutions, financing, and resilience.
