World Water Development Report

We contributed to a couple of chapters of the UN’s World Water Development Report of 2016, which focuses on water and jobs. Innovation and new technologies are a key element of jobs, and also an important focus of the Mountain-EVO project. To highlight that link, I wrote a little piece for the ESPA blog:

The World Water Development Report (WWDR) released every year is the United Nation’s flagship report on water, providing a comprehensive review of the state of the world’s freshwater resources and aims to provide decision-makers with the tools to implement sustainable use of water. The UN’s World Water Development Report of 2016 focuses on “Water and Jobs”. Dr. Wouter Buytaert, Lead Principal Investigator of the ESPA funded Mountain-EVO project gives his reflections on the report.
