About Cairo Water Week 2022

Climate change has become one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. Among the biggest climate change concerns is the increase in water-related hazards, such as floods, droughts, landslides, waves, and surges. In addition, the increasing water stress and the increasing gap between available water resources and growing water demand will make it more challenging to allocate water among competing uses in the future, including climate change mitigation and adaptation activities.
From this perspective, CWW 2022 main theme will be ” Water at the Heart of the Climate Action” from 16th to 19th of October,2022, where water actors and stockholders around the world will have the opportunity to present and discuss critical issues, policies, strategies, plans, and measures related to climate-water challenges. The Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation will organize the CWW in collaboration with national, regional, and international partners under the auspices of H.E. Mr. Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt

Egypt played a leading and outstanding role in climate change adaptation and proved to be a real pioneer on the road to development and sustainability. Egypt will host the United Nations’ Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP 27) in November 2022 at Sharm El-Sheik. COP 27 will be an excellent opportunity for all countries to deliver their central messages concerning climate change issues.

COP 27 will include many activities, including the “Water Pavilion,” which will be located in the “Blue Zone.” At Water Pavilion, the water, and climate action actors will gather to emphasize the tight relationship between water and climate change and to discuss the way to address and connect water climate action, science, investment, and policy. Building on the CWW’s great success, the Egyptian government organize CWW 2022 as a preparatory event for COP 27. The water and climate mainstreaming recommendations and outcomes will be presented in the Water Pavilion at COP 27. In addition to the water day side event during COP 27.

Egypt attaches great importance to the UN Decade for Action on Water and Sustainable Development (2018-2028) and the UN Mid-term Review conference that will be organized in March 2023. This importance emanates from the indispensability of water to human life, as human beings have no source but water for life, food, and agriculture. In this context, the Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt, in coordination with the UN relevant organizations, included Cairo Water Week 2021 and the Cairo Water Week 2022 within the framework of the preparatory events for the 2023 Mid-term Review Conference in order to contribute to building consensus ahead of the Conference and to provide messages from the south and from the water-scarce countries as a substantive input.

In the Cairo Water Week 2022, as one of the conferences on the roadmap for the Mid-term Review of the Water Decade Conference (March 2023), the discussions will be wrapped up and the final key messages will be agreed upon.
