|4. Meeting the challenge|
4.1.1 This section of the strategy paper outlines how we all - the people themselves, civil society, governments, the private sector and the international development community - can meet the challenges presented in section 1 and achieve the targets set out in section 2. In doing so, we will be applying the lessons described in section 3. (All of these are repeated here in Box 7 for convenience.) This section is structured according to the different actors, rather than the different subjects.
Box 7: Challenges, targets and lessons
The challenges are:
· to improve the management of water resources and the environment,
The targets are:
· to have comprehensive policies and strategies for integrated water resources management in process of implementation in all countries by 2005,
The lessons are:
