  • TITLE : "UNDP Operational Strategy for Water Governance in Europe and the CIS"


Part I: Situation Analysis: Water Resources and W.R. Management in Europe & CIS

The basic aproach
is to draft individual "Wiki-Articles" around the suggested topics under Part I (Situation Analysis), which will eventually be hyper-linked from either a summarizing core-text or from a bullet-point style list (as below). Every Article itself (e.g. "IWRM") will have a stand-alone value (e.g. explaining what IWRM in principle is, linking to other material, articles, and external resources), as well be part of the (dynanic) "Background (Sitation Analysis)" Section of UNDP's Regional Strategy
