World Water Week 2014 Programme

This year, World Water Week will focus on energy and water, two sectors inextricably linked and interdependent. In this programme, you will find detailed information about the more than 100 events that comprise World Water Week, including scientific workshops, seminars, side events, field visits, prize ceremonies, and plenary sessions.


We have invited energy and water professionals from the science and research communities, governments, international organizations, civil society and the private sector to join the World Water Week discussion. We look forward to seminars, workshops and debates on some of the most crucial issues facing the world’s population. This is just the beginning, we believe, of a closer cooperation between our two communities: it is only by thinking and acting together that we can create lasting change.

This year’s World Water Week falls between two major milestones in the process leading to a Post-2015 Development Framework, the release of the UN Open Working Group recommendations and the UN General Assembly in September. The Week will offer an excellent opportunity for the water community to discuss and push for a dedicated goal on water in the future Sustainable Development Goals.
