Understand the process
As Regional Process Coordinator of South America, the International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO for Latin America and the Caribbean (IHP-LAC) has requested reports to IHP National Committees from South America. COBRAPHI was responsible for drafting this report in Brazil.
In addition to Brazilian suggestions, the South American report will also be based on the reports prepared by IHP National Committees from other South American countries.
When consolidated, IHP-LAC will send the document of sub-region South America to the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Americas Regional Coordinator, which will integrate the content to Americas Report of the Regional Process of the 8th World Water Forum, which will be held in Brasília between March 18th and 23rd, 2018.
