With the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’ 2005-2015 coming to an end, the UN-Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development (UNW-DPC), hosted by UNU in Bonn, will be concluding in July 2015 in fulfillment of its mandate.
UNW-DPC filled an important niche in the UN System. The programme has fostered cooperation among UN-Water’s members and partners and has brought together cross-disciplinary expertise to build member states’ capacities on complex water issues. Between 2007 and 2015 UNW-DPC carried out more than 125 activities in collaboration with 34 of UN-Water’s members and partners, reaching over 2,300 people from 150 countries.
On 23 June 2015 high-level representatives of UN-Water, the United Nations University and German ministries will convene at the UN Campus in Bonn for this final event celebrating the achievements of UNW-DPC. To download the event programme, see the Related Files tab.
