Workshop on reporting under the Protocol on Water and Health

16 - 17 February 2010

Geneva

The workshop was organized back-to-back with the third meeting of the Task Force on Indicators and Reporting (17-18 February 2010).

The workshop aimed to support Parties and non-Parties in the preparation of their national summary reports. According to the decision made by the Working Group on Water and Health at its second meeting (Geneva, 2–3 July 2009), summary reports should be submitted by Parties and non-Parties by 31 March 2010 following the template included in the draft guidelines for summary reports (see ECE/MP.WH/WG.1/2009/5 - EUR/09/5086342/7). Summary reports will be circulated to all Parties and will provide an important input to the second session of the Meeting of the Parties, scheduled for November 2010.

The workshop provided the opportunity:

  • To exchange experiences and lessons learned by Parties and non-Parties engaged in the process of preparing their national summary reports
  • To clarify possible questions related to the reporting template and facilitate the completion of summary reports
  • To assess the progress in setting targets and reporting under the Protocol
  • To present and discuss the preliminary reporting’s results
  • To assess the experience with the template for reporting.
