Small Island Developing States are experiencing some of the earliest and most severe impacts of climate change.

This practical guide developed by The World Heritage Centre aims to assist those responsible for the management of natural World Heritage sites and provide better understanding how climate change may affect those features of the site that contribute to its Outstanding Universal Value and offer ideas for identifying options for adapting to climat

The World Water Development Report 2014 focuses on the interdependence between the management of water and energy and says that a sustainable approach to the management of both freshwater and energy resources is extremely essential to provide modern, affordable and environmentally sound energy and drinking water services for all.

This report published by UNESCO, the International Social Science Council and OECD, highlights connections between global environmental change, particularly climate change, and challenges such as accelerated production and consumption, population growth & widespread patterns of inequality.

The UNESCO has released a report titled 'Free Flow. Reaching Water Security through Cooperation,' which was published in the framework of the International Year of Water Cooperation. The report brings together a range of water professionals and stakeholders to share their knowledge and experiences in water cooperation.

Carbon and Water Footprints first analyses the origins of the carbon and water footprints. It makes a detailed exploration of the similarities and differences of aspects such as definition, methods of measurement, spatio temporal dimensions, components, and entities for which the footprints can be calculated.

Groundwater and Global Change calls attention to groundwater, a resource poorly understood by the general public and most water opinion-leaders and decision-makers.

Published by the UN University (UNU) Traditional Knowledge Initiative and the UNESCO, the book "Weathering Uncertainty: traditional knowledge for climate change assessment and adaptation" was launched at the International Council for Science's Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development, held in parallel to the UN Con

The purpose of this ‘global’ project on groundwater governance presents something of a paradox – it is looking for a global solution to a set of essentially local problems. Patterns of groundwater use are necessarily determined by the aquifers that host the groundwater and the hydrogeological process that condition groundwater flow.

Unprecedented growth in water demand is threatening major development goals, warns this latest World Water Development Report. Says that food demand, urbanization and climate change are increasing pressure on water supplies & calls for radical rethink of the way water is managed.
