6th UN Water Dialogue of Casa Solans: Improving access to water and sanitation information and knowledge from the UN system
Date: 17 June 2013
Place: CENEAM. Valsaín, Segovia, Spain
This new UN Water Dialogue of Casa Solans will focus on water and sanitation information and knowledge management issues. The dialogue will be celebrated in the framework of the XII Seminar of Spanish documentation centres on the environment and natural protected areas, which takes place from 17 to 19 June 2013.
The dialogue will offer an opportunity to share different knowledge management practices and initiatives on water and sanitation inside and outside the UN system and will also include different training sessions in this field.
Among the initiatives which will be debated are the UN Documentation Centre on Water and Sanitation, a UNW-DPAC initiative to improve access to UN publications on water and sanitation issues. Other initiatives include the 20-years experience of the Spanish information system on drinking-water, developed by the Ministry of Health of Spain, and the WASH Consortium group initiative by the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. The dialogue will also include a series of training sessions, including a workshop on water and social media by iAgua, and a workshop on W3C standards by the Spanish section of the World Wide Web Consortium.
