Water allocation, which is the allocation over time of water resources between and within different sectors and for different uses, is one of the biggest challenges in water management and protection. Increasing demands on water from different sectors, growing water scarcity and climate variability have led to a rising global interest to the topic of water allocation.
The global workshop on water allocation in transboundary basins will be organized in the Palais des Nations in Geneva on 16 and 17 October 2017. It will be followed by the fifth meeting of the Task Force on the Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems Nexus (18 October 2017). Read More...
