The week of August 28 through September 1, 2017 is “World Water Week,” an international conference organized annually in Stockholm, Sweden that focuses on new thinking and positive action toward water-related challenges and their impact on the world’s environment, health, climate, economic and poverty reduction agendas. The World Water Week annual forum is held by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) to provide a platform for collaborating organizations to gather for seminars and events regarding water and development issues. Individuals from all over the world gather to present findings at scientific workshops and examine methods for examination and collaboration on water-related topics. Each annual conference has a theme, the 2017 theme is “Water and Waste: Reduce and Reuse.”
The 2017 conference will include more than 200 sessions of seminars, volunteer projects, events, exhibitions, closed meetings and social events that link scientific understanding with policy and decision-making to develop concrete solutions to water, environment, and development challenges. A list of participating organizations can be found on the SIWI World Water Week website.
Research and information shared at the World Water Week forum is exchanged between scientific, business, policy, and civic communities with the goal of implementing actions and commitments and impacting decisions related to international processes regarding water-related challenges.
