December 2008: The UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) has invited comments on a draft report it commissioned entitled “Policies for fighting water scarcity and combating desertification.”

The report reviews relevant initiatives in the field of water
scarcity and right to water, and evaluates opportunities for creating
an effective work programme/roadmap for the UNCCD through undertaking a
comprehensive study on water resource and water scarcity adaptation,
taking into account relevant and emerging issues, projects and
programmes, case studies and other relevant technical and financial
information.
Readers are invited to review, evaluate and comment, by 15 December
2008, on whether the report articulates options for a Water Scarcity
Adaptation Policy Framework for the UNCCD and elaborates an appropriate
strategy that would be used for advocating for the adoption of the
policy opinions by governments. [UNCCD invitation]
