Abstract:
The UN Commission on Sustainable Development at its 13th Session (CSD-13) in 2005 called on Governments and the UN System to take actions related to water resources management and decided to monitor and follow-up the implementation of decisions in 2012. The report is based on the analysis of data from a questionnaire-based global survey assessing the progress and outcomes of the application of integrated approaches to the development, management and use of water resources. The report will be used as the basis for informed decision-making by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and national governments. It includes lessons learned and recommendations, as well as focus areas for action. The report also provides guidance for establishing a regular international monitoring and reporting framework to promote sustainable development and management of water resources.

Keywords: Environment,Water Management



Language: English
Abstract:
Green Infrastructure (GI) is becoming increasingly recognized as an important opportunity for addressing the complex challenges of water management. The GI approach refers to the natural or semi-natural systems that provide services for water resources management with equivalent or similar benefits to conventional (built) “grey” water infrastructure. This guide addresses one of the main barriers to widespread adoption of GI solutions: a general lack of awareness of the solutions and associated cost benefits. The illustrative case studies in this guide provide examples of GI options that address water management challenges, while delivering a number of significant co-benefits. These include reafforestation and afforestation., wetland conservation and construction, levee setbacks, flood bypasses and coastal protection, as well as a number of urban oriented option such as green roofs and permeable pavements.

Keywords: Green Industry Environmental



Language: English
Abstract:
The Green Industrial Policy: Concept, Policies, Country Experiences report, jointly produced by UN Environment and the German Development Institute (DIE) in the framework of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), provides an overview of the debate on green industrial policy, highlights what countries can gain economically from pursuing environmental integrity, and explores the policy options available to accelerate the transformation in ways that enhance both human well-being and environmental sustainability. A special focus is given to developing countries, because of their need for growth and their high potential for transformation, as they are not yet locked into unsustainable pathways. Practical examples are included in all chapters, and four national examples of successful green structural change are presented in detail, covering countries at very different levels of income and technological capacity (namely, China, Morocco, Brazil and Germany).

Abstract:
UN Environment's new Freshwater Strategy 2017 - 2021 is designed to bring together the organization's work that touches upon freshwater and provide a catalyst for action with various partners and stakeholders, at different levels of engagement. The Strategy describes where UN Environment will take global leadership, contribute to topics of immediate and pressing concern, and actively follow processes closely related to freshwater. Coming at a crucial time for kickstarting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN Environment will focus its Strategy on those that relate to freshwater ecosystems, water quality and pollution, integrated water resources management (IWRM), and water-related conflict and disasters.
