FAN's involvement in Stockholm World Water Week was more effective and dynamic than ever this year.
FAN nominated a speaker to present the ‘perspective of southern civil society on water and climate change adaptation’ during one of a series of meetings and negotiations in Bonn leading up to COP-15.
