A Vision is presented here of a world in which the benefits of freshwater and related ecosystems to humankind are optimised, while the intrinsic values of these systems are respected and preserved. In this world, the mutual dependence of people and ecosystems is accepted, and unavoidable loss of ecosystems’ functions and biodiversityis more than compensated through restoration.This Vision describes a world in which environmental security is guaranteed because everyone values and accepts personal responsibility for the conservation and wise use of freshwater and related ecosystems. The maintenance of environmental security is based on integrated management of all land and water use through an ecosystem-based approach within river and drainage basins, including their associated marine and coastal zones.
