About Water Cooperation 2013
In December 2010, the United Nations General Assembly declared 2013 as the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation. In reflection of this declaration, the 2013 World Water Day will also be dedicated to water cooperation. Given the intrinsic nature of water as a transversal and universal element, the United Nations International Year on Water Cooperation naturally would embrace and touch upon aspects comprising of the natural and social sciences, education, culture and communication.
