German Pavilion: A Water Secure Future for All
March 21 @ 8:00 am - March 25 @ 5:00 pm
The World Water Forum is the world’s biggest water-related event, held every three years to bring together key political actors, business leaders, NGOs, donors, and international organizations to promote dialogue and facilitate access to water and sanitation. This year’s Forum—under the theme, Water Security for Peace and Development—is jointly organized by the World Water Council (WWC) and the Government of Senegal, and will be the first hosted in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Forum provides a unique platform for the water community and key decision makers to collaborate and make long-term progress on global water challenges. The WWC, notably through the organization of the World Water Forums, has strongly contributed to positioning water as a global political priority.
The 9th World Water Forum will focus on four priorities: 1) water security and sanitation; 2) cooperation; 3) water for rural development; 4) means and tools for implementation of reforms in water and sanitation. Additionally, the Forum will convene a Summit of Heads of States and major international institutions, to advance the political agenda on water and sanitation at the midpoint of the 2030 agenda on implementing the water and sanitation targets and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The World Bank will convene and participate in several sessions and side events, details for which will be announced soon. You can follow along via Twitter using #WWF9.
The 9th World Water Forum is happening in Dakar, Senegal from March 21 to 25, 2022. German cooperation actors gather at the 150m² German Pavilion to present their contribution to AWaterSecureFutureForAll.
