Summary from Day I zRiver basin analysis systems and tools are needed at local and national levels and UNEP, UNESCO, IUCN, etc. will support the development of the tools. RBIS not involved at this stage. zGIWA, MA, GEF, IW, etc. have focused programs and can contribute data to RBIS but may not invest in developing RBIS.
Summary Continued … zMain clients for RBIS are: yUNEP - as an Assessment Tool to provide analysis at major river basin, sub-regional, regional and global level. yWWAP (UNESCO, UNEP, WMO, WHO, etc.) - as a tool for analysis and development of the World Water Development Report.
Summary Continued... zPotentially valuable as an information / analysis tool for MA, GIWA, IUCN E-Atlas, GPA, IGBP LOICZ and other. zUNH, WRI, RIVM, etc. are key technology providers. zHave a concept system for WWAP as basis for development and propose that in 2002 we test the RBIS concept in the African continent.
Summary Continued zPropose that UNEP establish a RBIS as a collaborative program with UN Partners through WWAP IACC process and UNH, WRI, IUCN, CBD, RAMSAR. zUNEP to seek funding from donors.
