This report was launched at the 7th World Water Forum in Daegu, Gyeongbuk, Republic of Korea. It presents the research conducted from 2011 - 2014, a new theoretical approach, a revised analytical framework and recommendations for policy makers to begin the process of implementing water and green growth strategies. The report provides a recap of the history and rationale behind the development of the Water and Green Growth Project and concept. The analytical framework used in the report has been developed through numerous discussions between experts in various fields and encompasses strategic, institutional, and practical approaches. The study provides a policy framework, a guide on ways to implement policy instruments, and policy implementation roadmaps as practical tools. In addition to the report, eleven case studies were also produced to provide guidance and support policy makers at the local, national, and regional levels (the case studies are available here)
