The objective of the Budapest Water Summit 2016 is to facilitate water to be the source of cooperation, peace and development in all countries that have a stake in sustainable development, instead of being the cause of global risks and further conflicts of the 21st century. For this purpose, the participants of the Summit shall discuss and adopt the “Budapest Statement 2016” in order to be able to propose solutions to the relevant international forums.

The closing document of the Budapest Water Summit 2013, the “Budapest Statement” clearly declared that in the targets of the post-2015 development agenda, water-related issues should be included as a stand-alone sustainable development goal and also elaborated the contents of that particular goal. The proposals formulated in the Budapest Statement covered the whole spectrum of water-management.
