World Water Forum
16–22 March 2009, Istanbul, Turkey
The World Water Forum is the main water-related event in the world, aimed at putting water firmly on the international agenda. A stepping stone toward global collaboration on water problems, the forum offers the water community and policy and decision makers from all over the world the unique opportunity to come together to create links, debate ideas, and attempt to find solutions to achieve water security.
The World Water Forum, organized every three years by the World Water Council in close collaboration with the authorities of the hosting country, is the largest international event in the field of water. It primarily serves four main purposes:
to raise the importance of water on the political agenda
to support the deepening of discussions towards the solution of international water issues in the 21st century
to formulate concrete proposals and bring their importance to the world’s attention
to generate political commitment
