World Water Week side event on UN Watercourses convention
Aug 5th, 2009 |
At the upcoming World Water Week in Stockholm, the European Water Partnership will support a side event promoting the ratification of the UN Water Courses Convention. Signed in 1997, the Convention still lacks the required amount of ratifications to enter into force. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has recently started a process to attract attention to this fact and to convince governments to indeed ratify the convention. The process has already had some success over the last months, with a couple of countries starting a ratification process.
The EWP supports this process which aims to have the Convention in force by 2011 and would like to invite you to attend the event on Monday August 17, 17.45-184.5 in Room 4. The flyer of the event can be downloaded via this link.
