      The third United Nations World Water Development Report [United Nations World Water Assessment Programme (UN WWAP), ] warns, in an unprecedented fashion, that extremely serious consequences may result from the current inequitable, unsustainable use of water. Both economic development and security are placed at risk by poor water by: The Committee commended the close co-operation which existed between FAO and other organizations such as the United Nations Water Resources Centre, UNESCO, WHO, WMO, the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) and CCTA, and between several segments in the Technical and Economics Departments of FAO.

About this journal. The Journal of International Development is an inter-disciplinary journal that aims to publish the best research on international development issues in a form that is accessible to practitioners and policy-makers as well as to an academic audience.

Alongside its main focus on international development, the Journal does not represent any particular school of development. The terms international waters or trans-boundary waters apply where any of the following types of bodies of water (or their drainage basins) transcend international boundaries: oceans, large marine ecosystems, enclosed or semi-enclosed regional seas and estuaries, rivers, lakes, groundwater systems (), and wetlands.
