Building momentum for water actions
“It is very important that the UNWC2023 can deliver outcomes that take a step forward and build momentum for water actions to make an impact on all levels.”
Tropp informed the UN-Water Meeting that SIWI offers the World Water Week (WWW) in Stockholm to be one of the first follow-up and stocktaking events after the UNWC2023. The WWW plays an important and forward-looking role to complement formal UN processes on follow ups to the UNWC2023.
“Making use of the World Water Week for follow-ups will be particularly relevant since the 2023 theme will be Seeds of Change: Innovative Solutions for a Water-Wise World. This will promote changed behaviors for more sustainable and inclusive water development and aligns well with the ambitions of the UNWC2023, to become an event where transformational change can start to happen,” Tropp says.
Following the meeting in Paris, SIWI is also pleased to announce that the next UN-Water meeting will be hosted by SIWI and be held back-to-back to the next World Water Week ( 20-24 August 2023) in Stockholm.
