The UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) issued a report on global progress towards transboundary cooperation on water (SDG target 6.5) at World Water Week 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden. In the report titled, ‘Progress on Transboundary Water Cooperation 2018: Global Baseline for SDG Indicator 6.5.2,’ UNECE and UNESCO note that, at the current rate of progress, the world is unlikely to achieve the target by 2030. The agencies call for promoting transboundary cooperation through implementing joint legal frameworks, improving monitoring, increasing access to finance, and undertaking water cooperation in tandem with action on related issues, such as poverty alleviation, peace and security.
