Details

AIDA is shifting into a higher gear. First, the Association has joined two separate initiatives, i.e., the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development (GFLJD), hosted and led by the World Bank, and Madre Acqua, hosted and led by the NGO by that same name. In both, AIDA sits as a partner, alongside IGOs and other NGOs. You will find the details in this issue of Aquaforum.

In January, 2012, AIDA joined as a founding partner the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development, convened and hosted by the World Bank. Particulars about the Forum can be found at http://globalforumljd.org/themes/environmental/. AIDA has thus joined a vast coalition of partners ranging from inter-governmental organizations to NGOs, and from government to academia, which have subscribed to the goals of the initiative and have committed to supporting it. In particular, AIDA has joined the Environment and Natural Resources Thematic Working Group, which is one of six Working Groups established around selected topical clusters. It is expected that the Forum will provide opportunities for AIDA to contribute from its vast pool of expertise, and gain as a result in visibility and relevance. The first such opportunity will be the next edition of the Law, Justice and Development Week, World Bank Headquarters, Washington, DC, 10-14 December 2012
