Title: "Water: A Shared Responsibility"
Date: Thu. Sep 21, 2006
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Description: Dr. Carlos Fernandez-Jauregui Deputy Coordinator World Water Assessment Programme United Nations Economic and Social Council Division of Water Sciences Acceptance of the need for a more people oriented and integrated approach to water management and development has gradually evolved as a result of a number of major conferences and fora on water. Until recently there was no global system in place to produce a systematic, continuing, integrated and comprehensive global picture of freshwater and its management. The UN system has the mandate, credibility and capacity to take on the task of systematically marshalling global water knowledge and expertise to develop over time the necessary assessment of the global water situation, as the basis for action to resolve water crises. As a result the U.N. has undertaken a collective UN system-wide continuing assessment process, the World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP).
