World Water Week is the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. It is organized by SIWI. In 2020, the World Water Week (WWWeek at Home) theme will be “Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action.”
In years past, experts, practitioners, decision-makers, business innovators and young professionals from a range of sectors and countries would come to Stockholm to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of the day. In 2019, 4,000 individuals and 578 convening organizations from 138 countries participated in the Week.
But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s WWWeek sessions will be conducted virtually so that returning and new participants can engage in productive and meaningful discussions around global water challenges while also helping limit the spread of the virus.
The World Bank Group will convene and participate in 20 sessions of World Water Week 2020 taking place from August 24-27. Please click on the "Sessions" tab for a list of World Bank Group (co)-convened sessions and sessions with World Bank Group participating speakers.
