water Crisis Demanding Collaboration
Water, a vital lifeline, remains a critical necessity for human existence. Yet, as of 2022, a staggering 703 million people worldwide still lacked proper access to this essential resource.
The scarcity of clean water has the potential to hinder societal productivity and exacerbate disparities, giving rise to social conflicts. Therefore, it is imperative that this issue becomes a central focus, particularly for stakeholders.
Effective collaboration among governments, businesses, and communities is paramount to mobilize the necessary resources and capabilities required to confront the diverse challenges within the water sector.
The realization of such collaborative endeavors hinges upon political processes among stakeholders. The political agenda plays a pivotal role in achieving our collective goal of "Water for Shared Prosperity," as envisioned in the framework of the 10th World Water Forum.
Let's Join the 2nd SCM
The 2nd Stakeholders Consultation Meeting (SCM) will address several pivotal issues, such as water for humans and nature; water security and prosperity; disaster risk reduction and management; cooperation and hydro-diplomacy; water and innovative finance; and knowledge and technologies.
