The objective is to raise the priority of tackling water security issues highlighted in the development agenda in the Asia-Pacific region in order to improve people's livelihoods and the environment.
We work collaboratively with a wide variety of water-related organizations in the region to build capacity and enhance cooperation, while boosting investment at the regional level and beyond.
The Japan Water Forum has maintained a role as the Secretariat of the APWF ever since its launch.
The 2nd JEC meeting of the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit (APWS) took place on 13 May, 2020 via web conference with the participation of 16 JEC members from Japan and overseas including two Vice-Chairs.
The new dates and further information of the 4th APWS will be announced after consultations with the relevant organizations.
APWF and its partners are to present the regional pathway from Yangon to Kumamoto City in advancing water security and sustainability at SWWW 2019.
