The IAEA invites UN 2023 Water Conference delegates to attend the launch of a new network to empower Member States to generate their own chemical, biological and isotopic water data.

Laboratory priorities in the water sector should be established jointly with other national priorities, particularly food and agriculture, human health and minerals and energy sectors, that also depend on functioning national laboratories.

The Global Water Analysis Laboratory (GloWAL) Network is aimed at:

  • making developing countries more independent in national data generation,
  • making countries' water resource management more sustainable and consequential, and
  • reducing technical gaps between developed and developing countries.
