National Focal points of the Water Convention

The 8th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the Water Convention (Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, 10-12 October 2018) adopted decision VIII/2 on the designation and responsibilities of focal points (ECE/MP.WAT/54/Add.2).


The decision explains the importance of having national focal points in countries (both Parties and non-Parties) as they play a critical role in the implementation of the Convention and represent the main channel of communication between the secretariat, the country concerned and other countries on Convention-related matters.

The decision requests Parties and encourages non-Parties to officially designate one or more national focal points for the Convention through an official communication to the secretariat signed by the concerned Ministry(ies). 

More detailed information on the responsibilities of the Water Convention focal points available here.
