The UNESCO Water Portal’s objective is to improve access to information on freshwater on the web.
UNESCO Category 2 Centre
"Water for Sustainable Development and Adaptation to Climate Change"
was based on the decisions of UNESCO.
The first decision is this regard was taken at the 36th General Conference of UNESCO in November 2011 in Paris, and the final decision was issued at the 190th session of its Executive Board in October 2012. Preparations are currently under way for the formal execution of an agreement between UNESCO and the Government of Serbia, and its ratification by the Serbian Parliament. The Center will commence its activities upon completion of these formalities.
UNESCO’s Director-General Irina Bokova and Serbian Minister of Education, Science and Technological Development, Žarko Obradović, signed on April 24th 2013, in Paris, an agreement on founding a UNESCO Centre for Water, Sustainable Development and Climate Change within the Belgrade based ‘’Jaroslav Černi’’ Institute for Development of Water Resources.
The ''Water for Sustainable Development and Adaptation to Climate Change'' Centre, which will operate within the "Jaroslav Černi" Institute for Water Management, will play an important role in Southeastern Europe. The Centre will promote expert cooperation and exchange of information between different organisations involved in sustainable water resources management. The Centre will perform these activities as a part of the relevant on-going UNESCO initiatives, particularly the International Hydrological Programme - IHP.
The international conference ‘’Emerging Pollutants in Water’’ which took place in Belgrade, from July 9th to 11th 2013, at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SANU) was organized by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) along with its International Hydrological Programme (IHP), UNESCO’s Category 2 Centre for ‘’Water for Sustainable Development and Adaptation to Climate Change’’ (WSDAC), ‘’Jaroslav Černi’’ Institute for Water Management, and the Serbian Water Pollution Control Society.
An international conference titled "Contemporary Issues of Adaptive Water Management" was held in Belgrade on 31 October 2012 under the auspices of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, in order to mark UNESCO's approval of the establishment of a Category 2 Center ("Water for Sustainable Development and Adaptation to Climate Change") under its auspices at the Jaroslav Černi Institute in Belgrade. The conference was attended by many domestic and international scientists, as well as representatives from international organizations: UNESCO, UNDP, IWA and IAWD.
UNESCO has actively supported many JCI projects, including the Regional IWA Conference “Groundwater Management in the Danube River Basin and other Large River Basins“ (Belgrade, 2007) and the International Conference "Water Resources Planning and Management" (Novi Sad, 2008) – organized to honor Professor Dr. Milorad Miloradov.
