The 4th World Water Forum

Toward the 4th World Water Forum, The Japan INWEPF secretariat registered INWEPF activities as local action.
Local action is a great range of experiences and actions that have been implemented at the local level in several regions of the world. Each topic session should present at least two local actions carried out by local actors.
So we registered INWEPF activities as one of good local actions in Asia-Pacific area, and it will be introduced in our topic session of the WWF4.
