unesco parisUNESCO’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.

In the speech that followed the signing of the Contract, Director General of UNESCO stressed that her organisation does not treat water management as a purely technical issue, but a political and social one as well, able to impact conflict resolution, poverty eradication, gender equality, etc. Emphasising UNESCO's pleasure at the increasing number of category 2 centres in Southeastern Europe, she expressed her belief that the Belgrade Centre - given Serbia's capacity and experience in those fields - will strengthen the International Hydrological Programme and the cooperation in the field of water, as well as help raise general public's awareness of the importance of such a cooperation.

Pointing out the importance of the "Jaroslav Černi" Institute for Water Management as the key scientific and technical institution within which the Centre will be established, the Minister Žarko Obradović said that the the Centre's main objectives will be expert cooperation and information exchange between different organisations involved in sustainable water resources management , as well as the production and distribution of scientific and technical information aimed at defining a policy of sustainable water resources management related to climate change. In addition to the said activities, the Centre will organise expert training, seminars, workshops, courses, and publishing of relevant papers.
