Overview of the pilot reporting process

In accordance with Decision VII/2 adopted in 2015 at the 7th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the Water Convention, a pilot reporting exercise commenced in 2017. The introduction of reporting under the Water Convention coincided with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their targets in 2015, followed by the adoption of indicator 6.5.2 to measure progress on transboundary water cooperation as part of the global indicator framework for the SDGs and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) have been designated as ‘custodian agencies’ for the indicator. In order to maximize synergies, the pilot reporting under the Convention and the first reporting on indicator 6.5.2 were combined. Parties were initially invited to report, both under the Water Convention and SDG indicator 6.5.2, in January 2017 and given a deadline of 15 May 2017 by which to submit their reports. Reminders were sent before and after the deadline.
