Meeting on the Post-2015 Development Agenda Consultation on Water: Water Resources Management and Wastewater Management & Water Quality

On the occasion of the “Meeting on the Post-2015 Development Agenda Consultation on Water: Water Resources Management and Wastewater Management & Water Quality” on 27-28 February in Geneva.

The organizers would like to announce that you will be able to view the meeting by live-stream video at  The plenary sessions from 10:00 to 13:00 on 27 February and 15:00-17:30 on 28 February will be available live online.

The water consultation has demonstrated that water is a critical element for development. Water is a determinant for most human activities, proving to be a condition for energy production, food security, health, education, and the integrity of ecosystems. Water is life, sanitation and hygiene are dignity. Water resources, wastewater management, and water quality were omitted in the current development agenda. A united water sector is essential for a successful, integrated development agenda.

Based on this, how can we make sure water features high on the new development agenda? What is the new aspirational goal for water? Many groups are coming together to formulate the new water post-2015 framework. As the consultation enters its last stage, be sure to join the discussion to have your voice heard!

The meeting aims to prepare for the High level Meeting in The Hague which concludes the Thematic Consultation on Water. It will facilitate the development of a short document for each stream that reflects the discussions that have taken place both online and during this meeting, thereby providing a basis, both technically sound and politically strong, for the future discussions in the Open Working Group as well as an input for the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
