Earlier this year, United Nations University’s Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) produced a book titled The global water crisis: Addressing an urgent security issue together with the Walter & Duncan Gordon Foundation and the InterAction Council, a group of former heads of state and government.

The book was presented to the IAC at their 30th annual plenary meeting earlier this year in May and was well received by its members.

UNU-INWEH will be hosting an event on September 11, 2012 for the book’s official launch and wide release. The event is being held together with the Walter & Duncan Gordon Foundation and the InterAction Council.

UNU-INWEH is honoured to be welcoming The Rt. Honourable Mr. Jean Chrétien, former Prime Minister of Canada and co-chair of the InterAction Council, to be attending as the keynote speaker.
