For its 10th anniversary, the Platform for International Water Law, established at the Faculty of Law of the University of Geneva, the Geneva Water Hub and UNECE have the pleasure to invite you to the Conference on “The implementation of international water law: global, regional and basin perspectives”. The event will take place on the 4th of December from 10:00am to 6:00pm at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva (Avenue de la Paix, 7bis).

This conference will include three panels. The first panel will address the role of universal freshwater agreements in water diplomacy.
