23 MAY: REGIONAL WORKSHOP: 'WATER FOR LIFE AND DEVELOPMENT: PREPARING FOR THE 4th WORLD WATER FORUM'

In the framework of the 10th Network Meeting of the Consulting Partners of the Global Water Partnership (GWP), the GWP and the Secretariat of the 4th World Water Forum (4th WWF) have organized a regional workshop, ‘Water for Life and Development: Preparing for the 4th World Water Forum’, to take place in Antigua, Guatemala on 23 May. The aim of the workshop is to analyse the level of water management in Central and South America, in relation with the rest of the world, as well as the status of the preparatory process for the 4th WWF.

WWAP coordinator, Gordon Young, who is the beacon for the 4th WWF crosscutting theme ‘Targeting, Monitoring and Implementation Assessment’ is one of the speakers for the session dedicated to the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management. WWAP Case Studies represent a substantial input to the upcoming Forum. Of the 23 case studies currently under development for the second World Water Development Report (WWDR II), 3 deal with major Central end South American basins.

WWDR II will be launched during the 4th WWF in Mexico city (Mexico) on 22 March 2006.
