Each year, thousands of leaders from the world’s scientific, business, government and civil society communities descend on Stockholm for World Water Week all with a common goal – to address the planet’s water issues and related international development concerns.
The theme for the 2016 World Water Week is “Water for Sustainable Growth” given the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and a new global climate agreement adopted by COP 21.
Good water governance
This year, World Water Week is taking place from 28th August to 2nd September 2016. As part of our effort to share the lessons and successes across Europe, we will feature in the 2016 programme under the topic “Good water governance for inclusive growth and poverty reduction”.
We are leading the seminar “Water Stewardship – enabling conditions for improved water governance in Europe”, which will explore how the private sector can contribute to improving the water environment by becoming better water stewards. This will incorporate the work happening in all five of our demonstration catchments.
