A high impact output which encompasses the entire process from creating content, editing, designing layout and coordinating consistently with the client on the assignment, this seminal brochure for IUCN pithily encapsulates the IUCN Water Futures Programme – A Dialogue for Young Scholars and Professionals in India and Bangladesh. The step-by-step brochure presents the context, the introduction, the format of the dialogue and takes one through the entire two years of Water Futures programme in 12 compact, comprehensive and visually appealing pages, written/edited in a lucid manner to the final outcome and future roadmap of the Dialogues.
The Water Futures Dialogue organised under the aegis of IUCN’s Ecosystems for Life (E4L): An India-Bangladesh Initiative, an IUCN led multi- stakeholder dialogue process to promote insights into transboundary issues across the three major river systems: Ganges, Brahmaputra and the Meghna (GBM). The project has been a landmark and pioneering initiative towards the opening up of young minds to think innovatively beyond political borders about water resources in the two nations – India and Bangladesh — via the format of sharing lives and experiences by exploring one set of topics set alternately in the two nations to generate greater empathy and understanding of issues. The overall objective of the exchange programme is to promote a deeper and nuanced understanding of riparian issues and common concerns.
The project partners were IUCN India and IUCN Bangladesh and Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi and University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
