The series of triennial Arab Water Forum (AWF) is considered the most important water-related event in the Arab region. The 5th edition of AWF will be convened by the Arab Water Council during the period 21 – 23 September 2021 in Abu Dhabi under the patronage of the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure and supported by the League of Arab States (LAS) and the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation of Egypt (MWRI), in collaboration with national, regional and international partners.

Providing a unique platform for communication, the 5th AWF is considered the stage where Arab water community leaders and key decision-makers thoroughly discuss water challenges that the Arab region is facing, being one of the most water-scarce regions in the world.
