Sustainable co-development as an instrument of international cooperation: the case of sustainable water resources management

Prof. Jean Fried, Project Scientist, University of California, Irvine, and Senior Consultant, UNESCO, Paris

Thursday, February 17, 2011 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

We call “sustainable co-development” international cooperation for sustainable development, taking into account the historical, cultural and societal dimensions of the populations involved in such cooperation. From our experience, we say that the knowledge of such dimensions provides a better understanding of the real needs and development priorities of the populations benefiting from the cooperation and contributes to the realization of the long-term goals of sustainability

After a brief reminder of the main principles of sustainable development, we will identify the concepts and operational principles of sustainable co-development and illustrate them in the domain of international cooperation for sustainable water resources management on examples from our experience in Central Asia and the Middle East.
