News Water adaptation in National adaptation programmes for action

Coordinated by the World Water Assessment Programme, the United Nations World Water Development Report 3:
Water in a Changing World is a joint effort of the 26 United Nations agencies and entities that make up UN-Water,
working in partnership with governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and
other stakeholders.
The United Nations' flagship report on water, the WWDR offers a comprehensive review of the state of the world's
freshwater resources and provides decision-makers with the tools to implement sustainable use of our water.
The WWDR3 represents a mechanism for monitoring changes in the resource and its
management and tracking progress towards achieving international development
targets. Published every three years since 2003, it offers best practices as well
as in-depth theoretical analyses to help stimulate ideas and actions for better
stewardship in the water sector.
