The world's largest meeting around water!
Every three year since 1997, the World
Water Forum mobilizes creativity,
innovation, competence and
know-how in favour of water.
The five World Water Forums organised
since 1997 have placed water on the
international political agenda.
They have undoubtedly contributed to a
global awareness of the water issues.
The Forum must be perceived first of
all as a tri-annual process initiated as
soon as a host country and a host city
have been selected by a series of
preparatory processes which
combine thematic, regional
and political activities.
These processes mobilise thousands of
water stakeholders over the 5 continents
andculminate in the Forum week.
However this week is not an end: it
represents simply an important
milestone in a continuous process
combining dialogue, action and
monitoring of the results.
With a unifying and open-minded image,the
World Water Forum strives to open its
activities to the entire water stakeholders
of the political arena and of the civil society.
The World Water Council, the host city and
the host country promote interactions and
partnerships at all geographic scales and
between all actors, with a special focus
on developing countries.
