World Water Day 2014 marks a big day for Global Water Partnership (GWP). Not only is the network taking part in the worldwide UN campaign to raise awareness on water-related issues – as it does every year – but this time GWP is also launching its new Strategy, Towards 2020, on this very day.
GWP Chair Dr. Ursula Schaefer-Preuss and Executive Secretary Dr. Ania Grobicki will officially launch the Strategy at the main celebrations of World Water Day in Tokyo, Japan on Friday 21 March.
Development co-operation is at the very core of what GWP does, and this is something that is reflected throughout the 2014-2019 Strategy. It builds on GWP’s previous work and achievements and it was developed through a year-long process of regional dialogues and consultations with GWP’s growing network of over 2,900 partner organisations across 172 countries.
