This World Water Assessment Programme Special Report brings together messages on water and climate change from the World Water Development Report 3: Water in a Changing World, the foremost United Nations report on the state of the world’s freshwater resources. Coordinated by the World Water Assessment Programme, the World Water Development Report is a joint effort of the 26 United Nations agencies and entities that make up UN-Water, working in partnership with governments, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations and other stakeholders.

It offers a comprehensive review of the state of the world’s freshwater resources and provides decisionmakers with the tools to implement sustainable use of our water. The report, published every three years, represents a mechanism for monitoring changes in water resources and management and tracking progress towards achieving international development targets. it offers best practices as well as in-depth theoretical analyses to help stimulate ideas and actions for better stewardship in the water sector.

The third edition of the report, Water in a Changing World is presented together with a case-study volume, Facing the Challenges. Adopting the premise that local actions and on-the-groun insights are the starting point of a global strategy to improve management of the world’s freshwater resources, these twenty case studies from around the world examine water challenges and differing managment approaches taken in response.
