SIWI World Water Week 2021
Every year in the last week of August development finance and water practitioners from around the world come together in Stockholm. For 30 years, SIWI has organized World Water Week. Today it is the world’s most influential movement focused on transforming global water challenges.
World Water Week will be held as a full-scale digital event on 23-27 August 2021.
After a decade participating World Water Week, Deltares was last year for the first time invited to be a co-convenor of one of the nine scientific seminars, titled “Disrupting the status quo: Water in health and climate crises”. In this role we cooperate with the Scientific Programme Committee – composed by IFI’s and renown Think Tanks- to shape the agenda of World Water Week 2021.
Join us for a week of intense learning and collaboration. Together we can develop solutions to address climate change and other water-related challenges.
The theme of World Water Week 2021 is Building Resilience Faster, with a focus on concrete solutions to the world’s greatest water-related challenges, starting with the climate crisis and including water scarcity, food security, health, biodiversity, and impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In preparation for World Water Week we will organize a serie of internal and external roundtables to discuss how we can contribute to close the implementation gap of the SDG’s and as our seminar states, drive a process of systemic change by example. So keep tuned …
