The World Water Forum represents one of the world’s largest water-related multi-stakeholders’ gatherings co-organized every three years by the World Water Council and the host country.

    The Forum provides a unique platform where the water community and key decision-makers can collaborate and make long-term progress on global water challenges. The Forum brings together participants from all sectors and at all levels, including political institutions, multilateral organizations, academia, civil society, and the private sector.  The 10th World Water Forum will take place in Bali from May 18th to 24th, 2024, and it will be structured around three pillars – the Political, the Thematic, and the Regional Processes – respectively. Preparations are underway, and at the first preparatory gathering – the Kick-off/1st Stakeholders’ Consultation Meeting –, which took place in Jakarta from February 15th to 16th, a preliminary framework for the Thematic Process was discussed.
