  • An expert team of economists based at the University of Oxford, Earth Change Institute will provide analysis to the HLP.
  • Expert Task Force – convened in Oct 2013
    Work being undertaken by a variety of research institutions including Oxford University, McMasters University in Canada, University of Massachusettes, Rio de Janeiro under the guidance of the expert task force
    Global scale research - a new water security metric that extends traditional water per capita concepts with water risk and water variability dimensions.
    Basin scale research - analysis of the pathways and investments that have been successfully used to provide greater levels of water security.
    The next stage is to integrate the findings of the country consultations, and bring all the different strands of research together.
    We expect to have more to say on the research findings in the next few months.
  • The thematic consultation on water
    This consultation is a about everything that has to do with future water challenges – the BIG water - with the purpose to listen to peoples opinions on what we have learn on from the present MSGs and what is important in a new development agenda on water. The process for the water consultation is organically developing alongside with the other consultations and issues for discussion and partners are added. It is facilitated by UN-Water bringing in its members and partners but is open to anyone to engage at different level. The actual steering and management is co-led by UNICEF, DESA and UN-Water management team.
    The web-based consultation will consist of two broad parts; the first is the general global umbrella dialogue on water trying to reach out to a large number of stakeholders not focusing on a particular water issue. The other part is the so called sub-consultations which will focus on sub sets of water and possibly attract a broader range of water experts found in civil society, academia, private sector, governments and within the UN-System.
    The on-line water consultation will be divided into three phases: Phase I is the global water consultation which will remain online and active for the whole duration of the consultation while Phase II focusing the thematic sub-consultations will start from mid-January and run up to till March 3rd 2013. Phase III will start in March and focus on summarising the outcome from the different discussions and the formulation of policy recommendations to the final report.
    The conversation will culminate in a high level face to face meeting in the Hague on the global World Water Day where the outcomes and policy recommendations will be discussed. The final report containing experiences and proposed policy recommendations will be finalized by the end of March to be delivered to the HLP but will also inform the GA and can be used by individual countries for negotiations in the during the MDG summit.
    WASH, securing water for productive uses, reducing risks from extreme weather events and CC, capacity building: sharing experience, institutional strengthening, appropriate monitoring programmes of water resources quantity and quality.
  • This follows up the 22 consultations carried out in Feb-May 2013 and reported to the OWG at their 24 May meeting. The focus chnaged from consulting on priorities to that of water goal and targets.
  • The findings of the country consultations will be widely shared, but some of the more specific actions include:
  • Note that GWP is tracking all of the upcoming SDG debates

    7. 7. National Stakeholder Consultations on Water – Phase I: Jan to April 2013 8 Facilitated by GWP in 22 countries: •Discussed challenges and priorities post-2015 •Countries want targets specific to their own situation - a common thread was about implementing water resources management following an integrated approach •Issues raised informed the development of the UN-Water Recommendations •Stakeholder report was presented to the OWG for their meeting of 24 May 2013 •Brought the voice of the stakeholders into the UN process. •Supported by UNDP, UN ECE, SDC and EUWI- AWG
    8. 8. The Country Consultations presented the UN-Water recommendations to key stakeholders at country level. They covered 29 countries, some the same as phase I to get follow up and some new countries to extend the outreach. The consultations promoted and provided feedback on the proposed Water Goal and targets, including informing senior officials and New York country missions involved in the SDG negotiations. The country consultations form part of the GWP-OECD Global Dialogue on Water Security and Sustainable Growth.
