Online discussion "Water Accounting & Water for Food"
FAO and the Technical Network on Water are inviting interested individuals to participate in the online discussion “Water Accounting & Water for Food”. This exchange is organized in the context of a World Water Council Member initiative on water accounting for agriculture led by FAO with UNESCO-IHE, UNESCO-WWAP, IWMI, ICID and DWFI to raise the profile of water accounting for decision making and to demonstrate the value added it can bring in smart planning processes in water management and water governance. The main objective of this initiative is to promote the use of water accounting through a process consisting of expert consultations, policy level interactions, and the development of a White Paper on Water Accounting for decision making in the agricultural sector. The White Paper will be presented at the 8th World Water Forum in March 2018. This initiative contributes to the work plan of the Global Framework on Water Scarcity launched at the Marrakech Climate Change Conference.
The online discussion aims to consult a broad group of stakeholders (experts in the topic and people interested to learn more), and to build a common understanding on what water accounting is and how it can be done and used. In addition, its objective is to gather evidence on why and how water accounting can help decision making and planning, in particular with regard to managing water scarcity. The discussion willl make use of email exchanges and webinar presentations, and all exchanges and documentation will be stored on an online platform.
The discussion will be open until 21 July, please register here to participate: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WaterAccounting-Poll.
