World Water Week 2017 –
Call for Engagement
The Week will address the theme “water and waste – reduce and reuse” from a holistic system perspective, addressing issues and challenges from all parts and countries of the world – low, middle and high income. It will do so by engaging all relevant water-dependent sectors, particularly food and energy, and all relevant stakeholder groups – public, private and civil society – with special attention to gender and age balance.
The theme covers the entire geographical range: upstream to downstream – from source to sea – and both rural and urban. However, with a rapid rate of urbanization, and the concentration of water-waste challenges in dense urban environments, the Week will contribute to the follow-up of the world’s urban summit HABITAT 3 in October 2016 by including a special urban focus.
