8th World Water Forum Highlights
The 8th World Water Forum, held in the city of Brasilia from the 18th to the 23rd of March, marked the largest edition in history of the event. As the world’s largest water-related event, the Forum brought water to the top of political and societal agendas. Innovative thinking, dynamic discussions and cross-cutting debates were at the heart of all the forum processes.
The “8th World Water Forum Highlights” publication reflects the breadth of impact and outcomes of the event. While it showcases the novel statements, innovative ideas, joint commitments and collective efforts that resulted, it also provides a strong impetus and inspiration for the next triannual process, which will culminate in the 9th World Water Forum in Dakar, Senegal.
