Call for Paper on Water Security and Sustainable Development Goals

 

 

The ‘Global Water Security Issues (GWSI) Paper Series’ will be co-published by UNESCO Headquarters and UNESCO i-WSSM on an annual basis. The selected papers will be published as part of the ‘Global Water Security Issues (GWSI) Paper Series’ and an honorarium will be awarded. 

All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory 


BACKGROUND

Over the years ‘Water Security’ has attracted international attention since the UNESCO International Hydrology Programme (IHP) placed an emphasis on ‘Water Security’ during its 8th phase, being implemented between 2014-2021, in line with the eight-year Medium-term Strategy of UNESCO (2014-2021). 

According to the World Bank, securing water is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and goes well beyond water access and sanitation. Surprisingly, though, a variety of topics regarding water security have not been extensively researched internationally. In conclusion, there is an urgent need to conduct extensive research on emerging and future global water security issues in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals and to document these studies.

According to the World Bank, securing water is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and goes well beyond water access and sanitation. Surprisingly, though, a variety of topics regarding water security have not been extensively researched internationally.
