Webinar “Implementing the Water Convention: A look at the results of the first reporting exercise”

23 November 2018

Geneva

During the 8th session of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP) to the Water Convention, Parties and non-parties shared their experience on reporting under the Water Convention and under SDG indicator 6.5.2.
The 'Report on Implementation of the Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes' offered a synthesis of all national reports submitted during the pilot reporting exercise.
The results on the first reporting exercise on SDG indicator 6.5.2 were presented (see Progress on transboundary water cooperation: Global baseline for SDG indicator 6.5.2).
Participants discussed how to address gaps and strengthen transboundary water co-operation worldwide, also on the basis of the Water Convention.

This webinar presented some insights on the 2018 MOP of the Water Convention focusing on the results of the first reporting exercise on the implementation of the Convention.

The webinar was co-organized by the Geneva Water Hub’s Platform for International Water Law, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and DiploFoundation. This event was organised within the framework of the Distance Learning Course on 'International Water Law & The Law of Transboundary Aquifers' delivered through the Continuing Education and e-Learning Centre of the University of Geneva.
