A world event

    Forum Mondial de l'eau

    Galvanizing Commitment and Mobilizing Action


    The World Water Council catalyzes collective action during and in between each World Water Forum – the world's largest event on water. Organized every three years with a 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 levels and areas, including politics, multilateral institutions, academia, civil society and the private sector, among others. Over the years, the number of people participating in the Forum has grown from a few hundred to tens of thousands, from both the international community and host countries.


    Building on this momentum, the Council encourages you to join the Forum’s efforts and strengthens the ability of the entire world to respond to water related challenges of our times.
