AWARENET secretariat invited AWARENET members to participate in a newly launched IWRM working group on SDG6.5.1. More than 40 members have expressed their interest in joining the group.

The working group activities were initiated by an invitation to review a draft baseline regional report on the implementation of SDG6.5.1 prepared in collaboration between ESCWA and UN Environment -DHI Center for Water and Environment.

AWARENET members contributed valuable case studies on IWRM implementation at the national level and provided insight on the analysis and information provided in the report from an Arab region perspective.  The comments and feedback were considered in the finalization of the draft report.
