acqua-fresca4Geneve. On Tuesday, 22 March 2016, the United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR) 2016 on the theme “Water and Jobs” will be launched at the ILO Headquarters in Geneva on the occasion of the World Water Day celebrations.The WWDR 2016 aims to provide the content and basis for debate throughout the year on issues related to sustainable water management and decent work. The Report illustrates that three out of four jobs of the global workforce (3.2 billion people) are moderately or highly dependent upon access to water and water-related services, and states that “water is essential to decent jobs and sustainable development”. In addition, water stress and the lack of decent work can exacerbate security challenges, force migration and undo the progress made in the fight to eradicate poverty. The WWDR, released annually on a specific theme, is the UN’s flagship report on water. It provides a comprehensive review of the state of the world’s freshwater resources and aims to provide decision-makers with the tools to implement sustainable use of our common water resources.The WWDR 2016 and related material are under strict embargo until its launch at 22nd of March. However, we are more than happy to provide media and journalists with the opportunity to access our embargoed Media Corner as from 11th of March onwards. This dedicated section of the website contains the WWDR 2016 and related materials, as well as contact details of experts on this theme. Having access to this material will allow you to anticipate this global event and prepare press release ahead of time.
