Contribution to UNESCO's programmes Since 1997, WWC works closely with UNESCO, and particularly with the Division of Water Science. In partnership with UNESCO, it has organized conferences, seminars, and workshops notably the International Symposium on Water: A Looming Crisis? in 1999, the International Symposium on Frontiers in Urban Water Management: Deadlock or Hope?, in June 2001. It has carried out programmes sponsored, inter alia, by UNESCO, notably the mandate received in the Marrakech Forum in 1997 to develop a “Long Term Vision on Water, Life and the Environment in the Twenty-first Century”. In 1998, the World Water Council launched the worldwide exercise of the “Vision for Water, Life and the Environment in the 21st century”, which helped identify needs and develop scenarios to achieve a sustainable water resources management. The “World Water Vision” project was implemented with the financial assistance of external support agencies and several government subsidies. UNESCO hosted the Secretariat of the Vision project within its Division of Water Sciences. The project was executed as a UNESCO extrabudgetary activity with the total funding of US $7.1 million. UNESCO also contributed to the project by developing the Vision for the Aral Sea Basin. The World Water Vision was submitted to the Second World Water Forum, attended by 6,000 participants, and constituted its core activity.
