Third United Nations World Water Development Report, entitled Water in a Changing World, will be presented by UNESCO at an event on 12 March at United Nations headquarters. It is published as a contribution to the Fifth World Water Forum in Istanbul (Turkey), 16 to 22 March.

"Increased demand linked to population growth and mobility, to evolving consumption and higher energy needs, and to the tangible effects of climate change are putting additional pressure on the world’s water resources."
