CEE Professor Dr. Gerald Galloway has been invited to the United Nations World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) to serve as the co-chair (with the Minister of Water for Nepal) for the WWAP Expert Group on Policy Relevance. The Expert Group will assist WWAP in overseeing the preparation of the Third Edition of United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR). The Expert Group on Policy Relevance is being formed to help WWAP to ensure that the WWDR3 and its associated processes achieve a quality of ‘practical relevance’ for its users and target audience. Prior to the UN meeting Dr. Galloway will attend a meeting in Italy (Perugia) with the WWDR writers and the co-chairs of other Expert Groups to discuss the status of the report and the results of their on-line consultations.
