Video - Water's role in Post-2015 Development Agenda (UN-Water Chair Michel Jarraud)



In a one-year-long expert consultation process, UN-Water's 31 Members from the United Nations system and 36 international Partners have come together to analyze what role water could have in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The result is a consolidated technical advice from the UN system to Member States to prioritize water through a dedicated global goal with five interlinked targets. The proposed goal builds on and extends existing commitments such as the Millennium Development Goals and the priorities agreed at Rio+20. Its overall framework universally applicable but responds to particular national circumstances.

During the Thematic Debate of the General Assembly "Water, Sanitation and Sustainable Energy In the Post-2015 Development Agenda" on the 18th of February 2014, UN-Water presented the Technical Advice on a Possible Water Goal.
