The World Water Week 2017 programme consists of more than 200 sessions of different formats and covering a range of subjects. During the 90-minute convenor events, the most relevant topics on this year’s theme “Water and Waste – Reduce and Reuse” will be discussed. Topics that will be addressed include: the implementation and monitoring of the SDGs, sanitation and health linked to wastewater, financing, integrated urban water management, food related to nutrition, water in relation to conflict and fragile states and much more.
This year we’ve introduced the Showcase, a space where organizations can tell their water stories, promote different approaches and share their perspectives, initiatives and projects. The new format allows for broader audience engagement, including external participants (i.e. non-World Water Week participants).
We are delighted by the strong response we have received from convenors to create more interactive and exciting additions to this year’s World Water Week through the Showcase.
