Group of Friends on Water and Peace
The Geneva Water Hub has been instrumental in establishing a Group of Friends on Water and Peace, which is a group of about forty countries represented by their Permanent Missions to the United Nations in Geneva who meet on a regular basis to discuss the issue and how to advance this important topic in the global agenda. The Geneva Water Hub is the Secretariat of this Group.
The Group of Friends on Water and Peace is open-ended, so all Permanent Missions to the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) are welcome to join it. If you are interested in joining it, please use the Contact form to let us know.
The Terms of Reference of the Group of Friends on Water and Peace are available below:
