The UN-Water web site has been redesigned and expanded to make it an easy-to-use entry point for finding information and resources on all aspects of freshwater.
For policy makers and others working in water management the site provides the most recent reference documents, policy briefs and reports published by UN-Water and its members and partners. For the media and those interested in gaining quick insight into freshwater, one can find graphics, statistics, facts and figures as well as information sheets outlining major issues.
It is hoped that the site will contribute in a meaningful way to global efforts to reach the water and sanitation targets set out in the Millennium Development Goals and the World Summit on Sustainable Development.
UN-Water is a coordinating body linking various UN agencies working towards solving water-related problems, including water-related disaster risk reduction. FAO is chairing the UN-Water based on a rotational agreement until the end of 2009. The Members of the UN-Water meet twice a year. The World Water Development Report produced by UN-Water includes contributions from UNISDR Secretariat, UNESCO, WMO, UNU, UNDP, and UNEP.
