UNESCO stelt zich ten doel duurzame oplossingen te realiseren voor watergerelateerde problemen die veroorzaakt worden door klimaatverandering. De Commissie draagt hieraan bij door met een reeks activiteiten de visie op watervraagstukken te verbreden van vooral techn(olog)isch en natuurwetenschappelijk naar sociaalwetenschappelijk en maatschappelijk perspectief.
