Mission/Mandate

Established in 2007 in Bonn, Germany, UNW-DPC is a joint programme of UN Agencies and Programmes cooperating within the framework of UN-Water, hosted by United Nations University. The programme focuses on capacity development with the financial support of the Federal Government of Germany, through the Federal Ministries of Education and Research (BMBF) and Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Dr. Reza Ardakanian is the Chair of the office. His experience is linked to the key solution to the water, sanitation and environment challenges. During his long experience, Dr. Ardakanian worked as Founding Director of the UNESCO centre of RCUWM, Founding Chair of the Governing Board of (ICQHS-Yazd), Vice Minister for Water Affairs in Ministry of Energy of Iran, for South West Asia, CIS and Middle East countries, as a developing region, and in Iran as a developing country.

The broad mission of UNW-DPC is to enhance the coherence, credibility and integrated effectiveness of UN-Water, by strengthening its capacity-development programmes, particularly in developing countries and economies in transition. In doing so, UN-Water will demonstrate a vanguard role and leadership in bringing together stakeholders in the capacity-development field and creating added value for their programmes. It is envisioned that as this mission is implemented, national and local societies will be more able to:

  • improve their absorption capacity and competence in water management;
  • enhance the effective management of their resources;
  • reduce their dependence on donors;
  • support self-sufficiency within a globalized economy;

thus contributing to achieve internationally agreed objectives and targets worldwide. UNW-DPC is clearly focusing on developing countries. The above outlined aspirations acknowledge the most urgent needs in those countries and also correspond with the general aims formulated and pursued by the donor community.
