Practice guidelines for water data management policy

During the 28th UN-Water Meeting held in Rome this week, the Good Practice Guidelines for Water Data Management Policy is officially launched.

These Guidelines are intended to be used by officers responsible for formulating and implementing government strategy to improve water information, with the aim of advancing water policy, planning, management and operations. The Guidelines were prepared under the World Water Data Initiative, on behalf of the United Nations and World Bank High Level Panel on Water.

Later this year, during the World Water Forum in Brasilia in March, the outcomes of the World Water Data Initiative will be showcased alongside other work done under the High Level Panel on Water.

The online version of the Good Practice Guidelines for Water Data Management Policy is available here.
