United Nations University
UNU works with leading universities and research institutes in UN Member States, functioning as a bridge between the international academic community and the United Nations system.
The five thematic clusters that the UNU pursues today:
- Peace, Security and Human Rights
- Development Governance
- Population and Health
- Global Change and Sustainable Development
- Science, Technology and Society.
UNU-INWEH focuses on issues in coastal, freshwater and dryland ecosystems particularly in developing countries and usually in rural rather than urban environments. Its research and training activities are committed to increase indigenous capacity – educational, managerial, technological and institutional – for effective water management in many developing countries to overcome barriers such as fragmented, intermittent, donor-driven, project-based approach that has been found to be ineffective.
