Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

International workshop on water scarcity

On the 11-12 December the workshop “Taking action in transboundary basins and reducing health impacts: International Workshop on Water Scarcity” will be held  in Geneva, Switzerland.
The workshop aims to accelerate actions to address water scarcity and thereby reduce the related health, social, economic and environmental risks, by sharing practical solutions, in particular from the perspective of transboundary water cooperation and health impacts. It will review measures to prevent scarcity and mitigate its consequences taken in transboundary basins and at national level, identify good practices and lessons learned and formulate some conclusions for further activities.

More information and draft programme for the workshop is found on the UNECE website.
