IAHR contribution to the 2021 edition of the UN World Water Development Report

2021 edition of the UN World Water Development Report  On the occasion of World Water Day 2021, UN-Water launched the 2021 edition of the United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR), which focuses on the issue of “Valuing Water”. 

WWDR 2021 groups current methodologies and approaches to the valuation of water into five interrelated perspectives: valuing water sources, in situ water resources and ecosystems; valuing water infrastructure for water storage, use, reuse or supply augmentation; valuing water services, mainly drinking water, sanitation and related human health aspects; valuing water as an input to production and socio-economic activity, such as food and agriculture, energy and industry, business and employment; and other sociocultural values of water, including recreational, cultural and spiritual attributes. 

The IAHR, represented by Angelos Findikakis, contributed to chapter 11 “Knowledge, research and capacity development as enabling conditions”.
