PRESENTATION OF 2nd UNITED NATIONS WORLD WATER DEVELOPMENT REPORT

On March 22nd 2006, coinciding with the World Water Day, the Director General of UNESCO officially will present the "2nd United Nations Report on the Development of Water Resources in the World: Water, a Shared Responsibility".

The presentation will take place within the framework of the closing session of the 4th Word Water Forum, held from 16 to 22 March in Mexico City.

The report on the Development of Water Resources in the World, published once every three years, is the result of a joint effort between 24 organisations and bodies within the UN system which participate in the management of water resources. The report is published on behalf of the World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP), whose secretariat is located within UNESCO.

Each of the fifteen chapters of the report have been compiled by various participating bodies and offer a detailed analysis of the situation in all regions of the world. This analysis is backed by the very latest available data, maps, graphs and multiple examples of how to manage and how not to manage water resources.

The report also includes sixteen case studies which analyse best practices carried out in different parts of the world. The first of these focuses on the Basque Autonomous Region. The Basque Minister of Environment and Regional Planning, Mrs. Esther Larraaga, will participate in the launching ceremony presenting the Basque case study.

UNESCO Etxea is responsible for coordinating the official Spanish language edition of the executive summary of this report, which will be distributed throughout the world, especially in Spanish-speaking countries. Similarly, it is also responsible for the Basque language edition. For both undertakings, it has had the help and support of the Basque Government Department of the Environment and Territorial Planning.
