World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) of UNESCO

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Providing a real picture of the state, use and management of water resources worldwide is at the heart of the mandate of the UN World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) of UNESCO. The programme coordinates the production of key evidence-based knowledge products (annual UN World Water Development Report, SDG 6 Synthesis Report) on behalf of UN-Water in close cooperation with many Members and Partners. These reports as well as other studies effectively support decision-making by strengthening the policy-science interface and formulating effective policy recommendations.
