Proceedings on Water Education and Capacity Building – UNESCO

Through the development of the Millennium Development Goals  (MDGs) and other water sector initiatives, one would hope that the importance of water has begun to sink in.Yet, regardless of this, there is still need for improvement, in order for persons to have access to a reliable water supply, proper sanitation, as well as, to ensure that such water needs are safeguarded against negative impacts for as long as its needed.

As a result of this, continuous  dialogue and the dissemination of relevant information is required to ensure that persons are properly informed in terms of water education and capacity building.

The document “Proceedings on Water Education and Capacity Building” published by the UN-Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development (UNW-DPC),  provides a summary of  “discussions held in Korea around these topics and provides an excellent starting point for deepening the discussion on the role of water education and capacity development for sustainable development, to motivate further research and to stimulate the development of projects and initiatives on this important issue for the achievement of water and water-related targets in the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDG ) framework” (UNESCO, 2015).

Since UNESCO offers this document through open access persons now have access to such discussions and main conclusions.
