Asia-Pacific Regional Process for the World Water Forum

The World Water Forum is the world’s biggest water-related event and is organized by the World Water Council (WWC). The World Water Forum contributes to the dialogue of the decision-making process on water at the global level, seeking to achieve the rational and sustainable use of this resource.

WWC organizes the Forum every three years together with the respective host country and city. To date, there have been seven editions of the World Water Forum, in different countries, on four different continents. In 2018, Brazil will be hosting the 8th edition of the World Water Forum.

The Regional Process consists of catalyzing knowledge sharing around the themes of the World Water Forum; collectively identifying key issues affecting the various regions and proposing solutions; capitalizing on political commitments; and maximizing stakeholder engagement and internalizing local perspectives on the Forum themes.
APWF has served as the Forum’s regional coordinating organization for the Asia-Pacific region.
