Capacity Development Workshop in Advancing Water and Sustainable Development
24 Feb 2015 - 25 Feb 2015
Conference Room 11
The capacity-building workshop on water and sustainable development is being organized by UNDESA, Division of Sustainable Development (DSD) through its Regional Programme for Technical Cooperation (RPTC) budget and with additional budget support by the UN Office for Sustainable Development (UNOSD). The workshop is designed to directly benefit selected countries that need such support. The workshop is also designed to tap into existing knowledge from research and academia through engaging them to share their knowledge and potentially establish a long-term partnership within the research-policy interface of water and sustainable development. Additionally, various middle-income and developed countries are also participating in sharing their experiences of how to tackle new challenging areas in their own national contexts.
