Welcome to the Redesigned UN-Water Website

Since its launch in 2007, the UN-Water website has had more than 5 million visits from people looking to discover UN-Water's work, download publications, get access to a range of water-related resources and learn more about UN-Water's Members and Partners.  

At this beginning of 2014, UN-Water is pleased to present a new version of the successful website with features such as cross-referenced contents, search engines and filters for research. It is our hope that the redesigned website will allow visitors to get a better overview of UN-Water, a comprehensive understanding and an entry-point to our activities, resources, news, events and publications.
