1. What is the UN Documentation Centre on Water and Sanitation?

The UN Documentation Centre on Water and Sanitation (UNDCWS) acts as a clearinghouse on water and sanitation-related publications produced by the United Nations system (programmes, agencies, initiatives, etc.). The UNDCWS facilitates search, increases dissemination and improves visibility of UN information materials on water and sanitation by facilitating online and off-line access to these materials. In order to do so, the UNDCWS project builds on three main components:

  • A network of twin libraries and documentation centres, where you can find these publications in hardcopy
  • An online repository, which you are visiting
  • A UN information working group.

2. Who has developed the UN Documentation Centre on Water and Sanitation?

The UN Documentation Centre on Water and Sanitation (UNDCWS) has been developed by the United Nations Office to support the International Decade for Action "Water for Life" 2005-2015/UN-Water Decade Programme on Advocacy and Communication (UNW-DPAC) with the technical support of the Municipality of Zaragoza, Spain.
