The Water issue describes a situation where nations and communities achieve universal and secure access to high-quality drinking water. The water resources required to produce food are used responsibly and efficiently, maintaining the natural environment in a sustainable manner. The Water issue is strongly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals 6 and 13.

As proxies to measure the state of this issue, the GAPFRAME includes the following two publicly available indicators: renewable water resources (SSI, 2014) representing annual water withdrawals as a percentage of total available renewable water resources, and water quality (OECD, 2015), a measure of ongoing satisfaction of citizens with the quality of local drinking water.
