UNESCO World Water Development Report, 2009

The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) published their third report on water.

The introduction states, "This Report offers a holistic approach to links between water and climate change, food, energy, health and human security. Human security, broadly conceived, includes basic needs for food, water, health, livelihoods and a place to live – issues addressed in the Millennium Development Goals. As the second part of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released in April 2007, demonstrates, poor people are likely to suffer most from the effects of climate change."
