Programme of Work

The main tool to support implementation of the Water Convention is its Programme of Work, which is adopted every three years by the Meeting of the Parties. The programme of work is shaped to address political and technical challenges of Parties and non-Parties in managing their transboundary water resources.
More specifically, the Programme of Work supports policy processes and technical cooperation from the national, to the basin and global levels  and focuses on various topics such as adaptation to climate change, the water-food-energy-ecosystem nexus approach or the sustainable financing of transboundary water cooperation.
The Programme of Work ‘s implementation is guided and reviewed by the Working Group on Integrated Water Resources Management, the Working Group on Monitoring and Assessment, the other technical bodies under the Convention, and, at the highest level, the Meeting of the Parties to the Convention.
