Stay tuned - The Global Observatory on Water and Peace
The Global Observatory on Water and Peace, a key recommendation of the report of the Global High Level Panel on Water and Peace "A Matter of Survival", was officially launched in March 2019, during the 5th Arab Water Forum at the Dead Sea- Jordan, organized by the Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA) in partnership with Jordanian Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) and League of Arab States - Arab Ministerial Water Council (LAS- AMWC), and under the Patronage of His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan Bin Talal.
The theme of this Arab Week was "Towards Sustainable Development in Water and Sanitation", and the Geneva Water Hub actively participated as a partner, and organized a panel session as part of the Opening Ceremony on Sunday 3 March 2019, entitled "The Global Observatory on Water and Peace: An innovative instrument for sustainable development".
In 2019, the Global Observatory on Water and Peace, a global network of diverse partners "nodes", engaged, in a cooperative spirit, to promote water as an instrument of peace, has continued to build those partnerships.
