    About the 7th World Water Forum

    The legacy the 7th World Water Forum therefore included:

    • Bridging the Platform of Science & Technology to Water Issues
    • Ensuring a significant place for water in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

    View full program of the Forum

    Necessitating two years of collaborative preparation with stakeholders from around the world, the Forum consisted of 4 preparatory processes within a common framework, so as to catalyze collective action and positive change.  

    These processes were Regional, Political, Thematic as well as Science and Technology. The Thematic process, overarching backbone of the Forum, was built according to 4 goals and tools: 

    1. Water Security for All
    2. Water for Development and Prosperity
    3. Water for Sustainability: Harmonizing Humans and Nature
    4. Constructing Feasible Implementation Mechanisms 

    The 7th World Water Forum was also composed of cultural events, a Water Showcase, the World Water Challenge, water prize ceremonies, side events, a water exhibition and fair, as well as a Citizen’s Forum, including a Youth and Children’s Forum, to raise citizens’ awareness in favor of water.

    The 7th World Water Forum was jointly organized by the World Water Council and the Republic of Korea together with the city of Daegu and the Province of Gyeongbuk.
