UN-Water hosted an all-day symposium on the sidelines of the Rio+20 conference to launch a new UN-Water report Status Report on the Application of Integrated Approaches to Water Resources Management. WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud, serving a two-year term as UN Water Chair, presented the report to Rio+20 Executive Coordinator Brice Lalonde. Addressing the assembled Ministers and other participants, Mr Jarraud described water as a fundamental human right and called the new report an important contribution to the sustainable development debate at Rio+20 and beyond.
