Water for Peace or conflict: Prospects for improved water cooperation Seminar

©UN Water

This Seminar on water cooperation, organized by the Permanent Delegation of the Kingdom of Sweden, with the in-kind collaboration of the Water Sciences Division, will be held on 16 April 2013, at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, as a side event during the 191st Session of the UNESCO Executive Board.
The objective of the seminar is to draw attention to pertinent issues related to international water cooperation: what are the challenges to be addressed and what are the immediate actions to be taken in order to favour water cooperation? To contribute to UNESCO’s work in addressing the global challenges through water programmes, the Swedish Government has proposed the establishment of a new UNESCO Category II International Centre on Water Cooperation, taking advantage of Sweden’s long term international engagement in this field. The outcome of the event will be further discussed during the World Water Week in Stockholm in September 2013.
