Cairo Water Week 2020 is not a one-off event, but rather part of a series of activities aimed at better connecting water organizations and wider water sector industries, regional interests, and communities. Cairo Water Week (CWW) is considered one of the biggest water-related events at the national, regional and international levels. It is an annual event organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, under the patronage of H.E. Mr. Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, in collaboration with national, regional and international partners.

Cairo Water Week 2020 will take place during the period from 18th to 22nd of October 2020 in Cairo – Egypt, and will address the main theme “Water Security in Arid Regions – the Road to Dakar 2021”, through five sub-themes overarching a broad spectrum of the water security.

In the framework of this cooperation, MWRI will support the Executive Secretariat as a strategic partner on the issue of water cooperation, one of the focus areas of the Forum. the CWW 2020 will pave the road for that important international high level water event the will be reconvened in Africa after that long time since the first World Water Forum was convened in Morocco in 1997.
