International Decade for Action

“Water for Sustainable Development” 2018-2028

Leaders and researchers from the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) will join a large and varied group of experts to share insights and solutions at the High-Level Conference on the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development,” 2018-2028. Organized jointly by the United Nations and Government of Tajikistan, the event will take place in the country’s capital, Dushanbe, on June 20-21, following a day of pre-conference sessions. The main aims of the conference are to define plans for implementation of the International Decade of Action at the global, regional and national levels, and put forward recommendations for attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly the targets related to water.

In addition to sharing perspectives through presentations and panel discussions, we have placed various opinion articles in diverse media this week, which draw attention to recently published research findings that are highly relevant to conference deliberations.
