Event Description
Building on the 6th World Water Forum, Rio+20, and other recent milestones, this session focuses on the transition from a comprehensive WWDR4 to a thematic WWDR5. Many socio-economic sectors compete for finite water resources. Explicit trade-offs will need to be made in order to allocate water to uses which maximize achievable benefits across a number of developmental sectors. While nexus approaches can incorporate cross-cutting aspects of water partially, the international community and countries still need and seek goals and metrics of progress for water. How can the WWDR5 support this?
