Water is a precious resource that sustains life on our planet. However, its availability and quality are increasingly threatened by climate change, pollution, and unsustainable practices. As the world grapples with these challenges, it is imperative for us to move from mere discussions to tangible actions. The 10th World Water Forum provides a unique opportunity for global collaboration and participation.
The Indonesian government, in collaboration with relevant institutions, cordially invites the private sector, academia, and the public, including youth and the media, to contribute to the success of the 10th World Water Forum, scheduled to be held in Bali, on May 18th to 24th, 2024. This forum is essential in addressing the critical water issues and driving sustainable change.
The Urgency of Global Participation
Access to clean water and sanitation is a fundamental human right. Nevertheless, billions of people worldwide still struggle to fulfill these basic needs. According to the United Nations, approximately 2.2 billion people still lack access to safely managed drinking water services, while 4.2 billion people lack adequate sanitation facilities. These alarming statistics underscore the urgency of global participation in finding innovative solutions to combat the water crisis.

By engaging individuals and organizations from the private sector, academia, and the general public, the forum provides a platform for collaborations and the exchanges of innovative ideas.
