This training will be the fourth following the suit of the ones that took place in 2018 (Cairo, Egypt), 2019 (Beirut, Lebanon), and 2021 (online). Close to 200 water professionals directly benefitted from these capacity development activities.

Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud Foundation has been supporting WWAP for the Arabic translation of the World Water Development Report since 2017. Thanks to this long-term collaboration, 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021 editions of the Report are now available to download free of charge on UNESCO’s website. These Reports provided in-depth information on ‘Wastewater: An Untapped Resource’, ‘Nature-based solutions for Water’, ‘Water and Climate Change’ and ‘Valuing Water’, respectively.

The WWDR is UN-Water’s flagship report on water and sanitation issues, focusing on a different theme each year. The report is published by UNESCO, on behalf of UN-Water and its production is coordinated by the UNESCO World Water Assessment Programme.
The report provides decision-makers with knowledge and tools to formulate and implement sustainable water policies. It also offers best practices and in-depth analyses to stimulate ideas and actions for better stewardship in the water sector and beyond.
