Water of appropriate quantity and quality and maintenance of natural environments, ecosystems and biodiversity are all mutually dependent. Fully understanding the relationships between these factors, along with the planning and implementation of effective practices, requires strong capacities and good governance structures and mechanisms, as well as the ability to share experiences, practices and knowledge. Any action should consider long-term sustainability.

The 8th World Water Forum will host focused discussions on these cross-cutting subjects – capacity, governance, sharing and sustainability – in order to identify the main hindrances and actions required to overcome difficulties that are common to the 6 core themes (climate, people, development, urban, ecosystems and financing).

Dear Henrique,

Thank you for your introduction.

Regarding ro the international cooperation, I think we can mention also the Commission on Ecosystem Management under IUCN. 

In fact, the Forum itself, strongly enhancing international cooperations, establishes an umbrella network for all ecosystem-related structures available all around the World. 

Kind regards,
