Information briefs

For the purposes of the Conference, the UN-Water Decade Programme on Advocacy and Communication (UNW-DPAC) has produced a series of information briefs on different issues and tools addressed.

Issues information briefs

Transitioning to a green economy requires a shift from current practice. The UN-Water conference has identified four priority water-related issues where this change needs to take place: for cities, watersheds, agriculture and industries. The issues information briefs introduce the main challenges, opportunities and key facts related to each of the issues identified. The briefs also outline a set of practices and approaches for transitioning to the green economy as highlighted by the organisations participating in the conference. These approaches are illustrated with case studies featured in the conference. The following issues are covered by these information briefs:

Tools information briefs

The conference highlights different tools which can be used to promote change and support the transition towards a green economy. These tools are essential for overcoming the current barriers that obstruct the transition to a green economy; to harness opportunities; and to address important issues such as inequalities. They enable us to do more with less, to realise potentials and to change behaviours in order to create a green economy.
