7th World Water Forum
7th World Water Forum

Introduction


Every three years, the World Water Forum mobilizes creativity, innovation, and know-how around water. Serving as a stepping-stone towards global collaboration on water challenges, the Forum is a unique multistakeholder platform where the water community and the policy and decision makers from all regions of the world can work together to find joint solutions. It is the largest international event which seeks to advance the cause of water.



Water is one of the most basic elements for life. In all corners of the globe, shortages of water and sanitation persist. Consequently, nations throughout the world have started to secure clean and safe water resources while protecting their citizens against water-related disasters. International organizations are also developing water-related issues and discussions. Now, water issues are not matters of a single region or nation, but matters that requires global solidarity and joint counter-measures.


Tackling water challenges has become a global topic for the 21st century. Water issues have been political issues in many nations, while interested parties (governments, the academic world, private organizations and interest groups) have strived to find solutions to address global water challenges. Indeed, the World Water Council (WWC), an international organization consisting of water-related organizations, governments and international organizations was founded in 1996 to provide a forum for global water issues.



In 1997, the year following its foundation, WWC created the World Water Forum so that interest groups from all over the world may gather together and jointly discuss water issues.


The World Water Forum is the world's largest meeting on water. Every three years since 1997, WWC has held each World Water Forum on or around World Water Day (March 22nd). The World Water Forum consists of at least three processes: the Political Process, the Thematic Process and the Regional Process, while gathering officials, legislators and local and regional authorities from more than 150 nations. Each topic is developed in cooperation with the private sector, governments, industry, IGOs, NGOs and academic groups into a common framework of goals and concrete targets to reach.
