UNESCO Conference to Focus on Water Security and Peace

UNESCO hosts the International Water Conference May 13-14. The event aims to advance sustainable water security and peace by leveraging intersectoral management of water resources.

Almost all human activities depend on water, be it food production, energy generation, industry or even recreation. Water management and governance affect the health of humans and ecosystems, and reflect the conditions of gender equality, education and cultural diversity of a region. Water resources are critical to sustainable development and poverty reduction.

Objectives of the conference:

  • Bringing everyone around the table to discuss intersectoral approaches to the governance and management of water resources.
  • Launching a Call for Action to foster, embrace, and adopt intersectoral water management.
  • Sharing good practices enabling participation, transparency and information-sharing.
  • Giving evidence of the importance of interdisciplinarity and the integration of sciences to support Member States in reaching the goals of the water-related international agenda.
