Session Content:

During this event, the co-organizers of the 9th World Water Forum will present the state of progress of the preparatory process of the Forum, with a particular focus on the results of the working groups, practical information on the mobilization of stakeholders, the provisional program as well as logistical information on the 9th World Water Forum to be held in Dakar, Senegal, from 21 to 26 March 2022, under the theme of “Water Security for Peace and Development”.

The session is expected to provide an opportunity for all Forum stakeholders to better understand the preparatory and organisational framework of the Forum, while providing a platform for all interested stakeholders to engage, exchange and catalyse concrete ideas to contribute to the development of the Forum’s agenda in all its aspects.

The World Water Forum is not a stand-alone event or a technical conference. It is an ongoing transformational process to catalyse positive change in the field of water – changes in both improved understanding and practices — which aims at paving the way towards a better future. The three-year process that builds upon the outcomes of other water-related global events is based on continual cooperation, engagement and participation of all interested stakeholders, whose involvement will help to further develop the 9th Forum’s preparatory process.

The organizers invite you to take part in this “On the Road to Dakar 2022” event, so that together we can succeed in making the 9th World Water Forum a tangible “Forum of Responses” to the water challenges for people and nature, today and tomorrow.
