Shill alert: You know the drill. I'm on the Steering Committee of the Global Water Partnership.
As I start my 27-hour trek to Yangon, Myanmar, for the semi-annual Steering Committee meeting of the Global Water Partnership (GWP) what better thing to do than post the GWP's Annual Report 2015. Here's the blurb that accompanied the email announcing the report [click on the graphics to enlarge them]:
The Global Water Partnership (GWP) has published its Annual Report for 2015, highlighting network achievements across the globe.
One of the year’s highlights was the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by Member States at the UN General Assembly on September 25, 2015. GWP is proud to have been a leading advocate for placing water resources management at the heart of this document, the Sustainable Development Goals. The 2015 Annual Report has a feature story about GWP’s contribution.
Another highlight featured in the report is the release of the GWP Youth Strategy at World Water Week in Stockholm.

Read about our new Steering Committee Chair, Dr. Oyun Sanjaasuren of Mongolia. She will assume her position on 1 July 2016.
We also have a new chair of our Technical Committee, Dr. Jerome
'Jerry' Delli Priscoli. Read his brief piece on how GWP must build on its history to reinvent itself.
Time to go - they're calling my number.
"The tragic fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta came on the heels of a presentation I gave at BCWWA in Whistler last week where I mused about the hydro-illogical cycle and the apathy that we can drift into if we do not get action after a certain period of time. This 2 - 4 year period I like to call the 'political return period (PRP)'." - Dave Murray, President, Canadian Water Resources Association
