News New UN-Water Report: Water Monitoring: Mapping Existing Global Systems & Initiatives

This report, prepared by FAO on behalf of UN-Water, put the accent on Water Monitoring. International coordination in monitoring the state of the world's water resources is needed, in order to guide future investments and efforts in achieving these goals. Governments and donors are increasingly called to put in place a uniform and consistent system to monitor the impacts of water-related initiatives. Crucial in this process is mobilizing the required financial resources of donors and lenders, by showing them that the impact of water-related initiatives in poor countries can be reliably assessed and that their impact on human development and environment sustainability is notable. The report can be downloaded on the UN Water website.
