Partnerships are voluntary and collaborative relationships between various parties, both public and non-public, in which all participants agree to work together to achieve a common purpose or undertake a specific task and, as mutually agreed, to share risks and responsibilities, resources and benefits. Throughout its activity, WCCE has established collaboration with several global organizations. Although each organization's scopes might be different, all had in common the interest of working towards the accomplishment of UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Following, we present the most relevant and fruiful so far.

🌐 UN system

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - UNESCO

The partnership agreement was signed on March 14th, 2015. Their common efforts will focus on the integration of sustainability in engineering curriculum and accreditation of civil engineering education, and on the promotion of engineering in sustainable development.

The agreement was signed by Mr Alfonso Alberto González Fernández, President of WCCE, and Ms Blanca Elena Jiménez-Cisneros, Executive Secretary of UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme, representing Flavia Schlegel, Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences, UNESCO.

At the meeting, WCCE reiterated its intention to consolidate and streamline engineering in line with UNESCO’s programme priorities and to contribute to the achievement of UNESCO’s strategic goals by mobilizing engineering and science knowledge as well as policy for sustainable development.

Through this Partnership Agreement, the two organizations will collaborate on the elaboration and dissemination of UNESCO’s Engineering Report. They will also promote initiatives to enhance seismic safety in heritage structures and foster the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Goals upon civil engineering professionals.

United Nations Water - 
UN Water

On late September, we were honoured by UN Water to become its partner member. We expect a fruitful collaboration from such partnership and from any other UN Water partners we will contact in UN Water fostered meetings. 

UN-Water is an entity composed of the UN agencies and organizations engaged in work related to water and sanitation. The goals of UN-Water are to promote and provide an efficient, coherent and proactive mechanism for coordination of the UN System agencies and programmes, and to contribute substantially to the achievement of global water and sanitation related targets and goals. UN-Water plays a key role in identifying and disseminating UN positions on various water-related issues within global fora and processes.

The expected outcome of UN-Water activities is improved system-wide coordinated actions and coherence, as well as increased effectiveness and collaboration in the support to Member States in their efforts towards the achievement of agreed goals, targets and actions in the water sector. UN-Water is currently composed of representatives of 31 United Nations organizations. United Nations organizations include those responsible for major funds and programs, specialised agencies, regional commissions, United Nations conventions and other entities within the UN system.

International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research  - IAHR

The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydro-informatics and continuing education and training. IAHR stimulates and promotes both research and it's application, and by so doing strives to contribute to sustainable development, the optimisation of world water resources management and industrial flow processes.

Through this Partnership Agreement, the two organizations will collaborate establish this partnership to advance mutual interests in any initiatives in order to ensure universal access to water and to supply water for sustainable development.

Furthermore, they'll have plenty of experience in writing nursing papers, and will know what terminology to use, phrases, and structure to use. They can even help you choose the topic, conduct background research, and finish your paper if it's incomplete.
If you are not able to finish your chemistry homework due to lack of time, you can ask someone else to do my chemistry homework. These services specialize in delivering papers for various subjects and you can trust them with your paper. They will provide you with a quality paper that is unique and well researched. Most of them have at least a Ph.D. or a master's degree in chemistry and will know the importance of meeting your deadline.
