The UN 2023 Water Conference will take place on 22-24 March and is seen as an important chance for the world to tackle the fast-growing global water crisis. In this webinar you will meet a broad range of SIWI experts and learn about emerging water trends. We will also explore the UN 2023 Water Conference from many different angles.

Which outcomes can we expect from the conference? How can young people get more of a say? What is the role of water in climate mitigation? Why doesn’t everyone have access to clean water and safe sanitation? How can water be a tool for peace? These are just a few of the questions we hope to answer.
