IWMI at World Water Week 2020

When

August 24, 2020 - August 28, 2020    
All Day

Where

This year we step in to a virtual World Water Week from our homes. World Water Week 2020 is planned around the theme “Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action”.

Water is not just a central part of the problem – it is also a central focus for adaptive solutions. It is with this focus that we launched our #water4climate campaign this year in line with World Water Day.

The virtual adaptation of #WWWeek follows suit to bring together a broad range of convenor-hosted sessions on water and climate with IWMI co-hosting and taking part in several.

The event, organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), provides an opportunity for scientists, policy makers and representatives of the private sector and civil society to foster new thinking and collaborative action on today’s most pressing water-related challenges.
