10th World Water Forum

May 18-25, 2024
Bali, Indonesia
Water for Shared Prosperity

The 2024 World Water Forum (10th WWF)—under the theme of Water for Shared Prosperity—is jointly organized by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia and the World Water Council. The Forum is the world's largest event on water organized, since 1997, every three years with a different host country. The Forum provides a unique platform for the water community and key decision-makers to collaborate and make long-term progress commitments on global water challenges to provide clean and fair water for all.

The Forum’s raison d'être is to bring together participants from all levels and areas, including political actors, multilateral institutions, academia, civil society, and the private sector, among others. Over the years, the number of people participating in the Forum has grown from a few hundred to tens of thousands, from both the international community and host countries.

This year’s theme emphasizes the need to work together to promote efficient and integrated water resources management to common prosperity. The 10th WWF’s six subthemes are: Water Security and Prosperity; Water for Humans and Nature; Disaster Risk Reduction and Management; Governance, Cooperation and Hydro-diplomacy; Sustainable Water Finance; and Knowledge and Innovation. This year, the Forum is expected to host 350 sessions, and receive 100,000 participants and visitors, 56 ministers, 12 heads of state, and about 2,000 journalists.
