WWAP Side Publications Series from the 3rd Report

The third edition of the UN World Water Development Report, "Water in a Changing World" is accompanied by a new series of side publications. Written by partner organizations, these publications are intended to provide more focused, in-depth information and scientific background knowledge, and a closer look at some less conventional water sectors.

Unfortunately, we are only able to offer these publications in English.

The series is divided into three primary types of publications:

  1. Scientific side papers. This series is intended to provide scientific information on subjects covered in the WWDR and to serve as bridge between the Report’s contents and the scientific, peer-reviewed publications.
  2. Sector and Topic-Specific 'Insight' Reports. The reports and documents in this series will provide more in-depth information on water-related sectors, issues and topics in a stand-alone manner. Examples for this series include Integrated Water Resources Management, transboundary issues, and technology, among others.
  3. Dialogue Series. Sectors and topics to which water is cross-cutting or important will be covered under this series. Some examples of this collection of reports include climate change, security, biodiversity, poverty alleviation, and land use.
