DESCRIPTION

[OS-CF-6] Transforming our World, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proclaims an ‘all-of-society engagement and partnership’ to end poverty and hunger and to achieve sustainable and equitable development in harmony with nature. In the water domain, the participatory and multi-stakeholder approach at different levels is already anchored in the Rio/Dublin Principles for Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), translation of these principles into practice however, is often still in its initial stages. This session zooms in on Rio/Dublin Principle 3 concerning the role of Women as one of nine identified segments of society (Major Groups of Agenda 21) that play different and complementary roles in achieving sustainable and equitable use and management of water resources.
