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 3rd JEC meeting of the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit (APWS) took place on 18 September, 2020 via web conference with the participation of 16 JEC members from Japan and overseas including two Vice-Chairs.
Last April, considering the complex difficulties caused by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we regrettably announced that the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit (4th APWS) was postponed. However, after careful consultations with the relevant organizations, it is our great pleasure to announce that the 4th APWS has been rescheduled and will be held on 23rd and 24th April 2022.
The APWF Webinar Series is organized as a part of the preparation for the 4th APWS. It aims to provide the government officials of the 49 countries in Asia and the Pacific with the learning opportunities about water and water-related issues highlighted from different perspectives.
