Over the last five decades, Malta has made remarkable strides in the water sector. The nation’s average water consumption now stands at 110 litres per person per day, a figure that is nearly half of the 200-litre European Union average. This achievement underscores Malta’s dedication to sustainable water management and conservation.

In light of the growing effects of climate change, Malta acknowledges the necessity of pioneering solutions to tackle water challenges. The nation has successfully turned these challenges into opportunities, fostering a more robust and sustainable water sector. WSC takes pride in Malta’s water resource management services, which can serve as an exemplary model for other Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

Malta’s national water policy has progressed through an extensive learning process, influenced by the distinct challenges of being an island nation. Despite these obstacles, the Maltese government has triumphed in transforming the water challenge into a remarkable success story.

Continuing its tradition of cooperation, the Maltese government pledges to support other small islands in their quest to conserve and protect water resources. At the UN Water Conference, Malta’s side event will offer a comprehensive overview of various water management solutions tailored to the unique conditions of island environments.

WSC wholeheartedly endorses the Under-Secretary-General for the UN 2023 Water Conference’s statement, referring to this conference as a “dealmaker” for stability and international collaboration in the water sector. Through this event, Malta is committed to engaging with partner countries to foster synergies and address shared water management challenges.
