Water Authorities have long been powerful drivers of global, national and local innovation for economic development, environmental enhancement and societal wellbeing. Accordingly, they have a critical role in progressing sustainable development. In this paper, we discuss the opportunities and challenges in breaking down the siloes of resource management sectors (including water, energy, waste, food, public health and others) to deliver innovative solutions to resource management in an integrated “whole of system” capacity. We provide a framework for Integrated Sustainable Management (ISM) and discuss how Water Authorities can lead this transition through embedding Sustainable Development Goals in IWM strategies and operations.
