Newly launched UN-Water Country Briefs: Interview with Project Supervisor Karen Frenken, FAO

11.09.2013 -
How much does water matter to a country's development and growth? How much is the country investing in water?
In pooling together the national data on these themes, the UN-Water Country Briefs also generated a new data set on investments in water for the 13 pilot countries. Moreover, they have elaborated a replicable method, which could be applied to other countries, focusing on the tacit links between water-related investment and development. In this interview Ms. Karen Frenken answers the questions of Ms. Marisha Wojciechowska-Shibuya on the Briefs and the way forward.
