The closing ceremony of the International Year of Water Cooperation took place in Mexico on 5 and 6 December 2013.
It was organized by UNESCO on behalf of UN-Water, with support from the Government of Mexico through the National Water Commission (CONAGUA).
During the first day devoted to lessons learned from the International Year, Mr. Jean-François Donzier, Secretary of the International Network of Basin Organizations, made an introductory speech on River Basin Management worldwide in the high-level session on "cooperation, a key to peaceful water sharing".
The second day, entitled "Beyond the International Year: recommendations for action" was an opportunity to specify the action to take for the future.
