UN-Water endorses World Water Scenarios project

In Washington DC (USA) on 19−21 February, the 30 bodies that make up UN-Water endorsed the World Water Scenarios project as an affiliated scheme. The project was initiated in 2009 by the World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP).

UN-Water designated a working group to act as an interface with the project. The group will include existing UN-Water members of the project, the UN-Water Management Team and other interested members and partners. WWAP will coordinate the working group.

The World Water Scenarios project explores alternative futures for the world’s freshwater resources and their use to 2050, in order to inform sound decision-making in all related sectors: agriculture, water management, industry, energy production, etc. The project’s initial findings were published in the last edition of the World Water Development Report (see A World of Science, April 2012).
