Ready for the World Water Week
On 23 August 2015, WWAP convenes the special event “Water for a Sustainable World: Messages from the United Nations World Water Development Report 2015”, at 2015 World Water Week in Stockholm.
Water for Development is the main theme of the World Water Week 2015 and the World Water Development Report, the flagship publication of UN-Water, provides a focused descriptive analysis that demonstrates how water is a key factor in a future sustainable world. Taking into account economic growth, social equity and environmental sustainability, a forward-looking narrative describes how major challenges and change factors in the modern world will affect – and can be affected by – water resources, services and related benefits in a not too distant future.
The audience will interact with the panelists on the vision of a sustainable world where water is managed in support of human well-being and ecosystems.
The main objective of the session is to inform general public, policy- and decision-makers, about the role and importance of water in a future, sustainable, world. The session will address both thematic challenge areas and regional highlights.
In the following days, WWAP also co-organizes the events below, related to gender sensitive water monitoring:
