The 2009 meeting of the G8 in Italy comes a few months after the launch of the third edition of the United Nations World Water Development Report on 16 March 2009 during the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul.
This third edition signifies an important transition in the World Water Development Report series; a transition from a status report on the world’s water-related challenges to a report that paints a holistic picture of our global water resources, with water sub-sectors and challenge areas understood within the broader context of socioeconomics. It acknowledges that most decisions that have an impact on water resources (on their state and on how we use and manage them) come from outside the ‘water box’ of the traditional water sector.
