UN-Water Activity Information System
The UN-Water Activity Information System (UNW-AIS) is an online platform to present and share information on water-related projects and learning initiatives from UN-Water's Members and Partners. It has been developed and is being maintained by the UN-Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development (UNW-DPC).
UNW-AIS was designed for UN-Water's Members and Partners as well as for a broader audience including policy makers, water professionals, researchers and those from higher education for sharing information and knowledge from global to local level. The two core components of the UNW-AIS relate to projects and learning activities, both face to face and distance. UNW-AIS also contains results from several project mappings conducted under the auspices of UN-Water Task Forces, Thematic Priority Areas and the GEF IW:Science initiative. UNW-AIS contributes to the UN effort to 'deliver as one' by covering the whole water and sanitation sector from global to local level.
