FAN's involvement in Stockholm World Water Week was more effective and dynamic than ever this year.

The road to Copenhagen

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.

A challenging experience for FAN at the 5th World Water Forum

FAN was able to achieve several positive outcomes during its participation in the 5th World Water forum in Istanbul in March 2009.  However, some members also experienced difficulties in gaining adequate financial support and opportunities for networking were quite limited for civil society organizations (CSOs).

Experience of participating in CSD-13

Getting the opportunity to participate in CSD-13 held in UN Headquarters was really an exciting time for me. While walking towards UN building on the first day I recollected the images of most thrilling sessions we had in our village school hut on the “UNO” chapter. Probably that was only part of Social Studies subject which somehow attracted me and helped me finally secure pass marks.
