9th World Water Forum

The 9th World Water Forum is taking place in Dakar, Senegal from 21 to 25 March 2022. It is the world’s largest international event on water and Sustainable Development Goal 6 of the 2030 Agenda and offers a unique platform for politics, multilateral institutions, academia, civil society, and the private sector to make long-term progress on global water challenges. With more than 700 million euros in annual funding, Germany has been one of the three largest bilateral donors in the water sector for many years and is present with a German pavilion on-site.

The pavilion showcases the joint and multifaceted engagement of German development cooperation worldwide under the core message “A water-secure future for all.” The pavilion hosts numerous events, which you can follow via live stream. Feel free to tune in live or rewatch the vivid sessions on WASH measures as a Covid19 response, water security and international hydro-diplomacy, transboundary groundwater management, climate-change-adapted and peace-promoting water resource management or nature-based solutions for water security!
