Presentation on the outcomes of the High-Level International Conference on the International Decade for Action  "Water for Sustainable Development" 2018-2028

On 18 July 2018 the Deputy Foreign Minister Mr. Ismatullo Nasredin in the framework of the Economic and Environmental Committee of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has delivered a presentation on the outcomes of the International High-Level Conference on the International Decade for Action "Water for Sustainable Development" 2018-2028, as well as the content of the final documents and recommendations of the conference, which was held in Dushanbe on 20-22 June 2018.

It was highlighted that the implementation of the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development” at the national, regional and global levels will contribute to the process of realization of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, particularly implementation of the SDG 6 aimed at ensuring universal access to water and sanitation.

It should be noted that for the first time the idea on announcement of the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development” was initiated by H.E. Mr. Emomali Rahmon, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, at the 7th World Water Forum in April 2015 in the Republic of Korea. On the basis of this proposal in December 2016 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled “International Decade for Action” Water for Sustainable Development”, 2018-2028 which have been co-sponsored by 177 UN member states.
