World Water Week
25-30 Aug 2019
Tele2 Arena, Enskede, Sweden
Water issues have always been major issues in the entire world. So, to discuss this issue and have a talk or discussion about this critical problem, World Water Week is organized. Its main motive is to bring attention of the people to the water-related challenges that are occurring in almost every part if the world. This event allows people to exchange their views, experiences, and practices, between scientific, business, policy and civiccommunities. This problem may lead to several other problems that include, health, climate, economy, and poverty reduction as well. So it needs to be solved and this can be done by the help of scientific studies, maintaining relations between various area expertise, highlight ground breaking research, to develop concrete solutions to water, environment and development challenges.
World Water Week is the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. It is organized by SIWI. In 2019, World Water Week will address the theme “Water for society – Including all”. In 2018, over 3,300 individuals and around 380 convening organizations from 135 countries participated in the Week.
Experts, practitioners, decision-makers, business innovators and young professionals from a range of sectors and countries come to Stockholm to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today. We believe water is key to our future prosperity, and that together, we can achieve a water wise world.
The World Water Week 2019 theme: time to focus on inclusiveness
In the fourth year of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 2019 World Water Week addresses the basic objective of this agenda to secure inclusive and sustainable development for all people in all countries. The UN is focusing on “no-one left behind” as the theme for the 2019 World Water Day and World Water Development Report. In Stockholm, we are aligning this 2019 Thematic Scope with that theme, broadened to the wider perspective of inclusiveness. Water security underlies human and environmental security; access to and use of water in adequate quantity and quality are fundamental to survival and prosperity.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set ambitious targets for our future development applying to all countries, whether high, middle or low income. This Thematic Scope covers many of these goals, in particular SDG 1 on poverty, SDG 2 on hunger, SDG 5 on gender equality, SDG 6 on water and sanitation, SDG 10 on inequality and SDG 16 on peaceful and inclusive societies. Achieving these goals is central to the inclusive societal transformation process which is required to achieve all the SDG targets by 2030.
