Welcome to the seventh edition of the UN Environment Programme GEMS/Water Capacity Development Centre (CDC) Newsletter. 

The last six months have flown by with productive meetings and workshops involving many different countries and organisations. We completed our global scoping of capacity development needs for water quality monitoring and assessment and engaged in several other collaborative activities across the globe. The first phase of GEMS/Water capacity development will end during 2020 and we will soon begin planning new activities for the new decade. Water quality monitoring and assessment is changing fast with new technology and improved access to satellite data, so if you have ideas about what kind of capacity development GEMS/Water should try to offer in the coming years, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
