World Water Week (WWW) is an annual global event for concretely addressing the planet’s water issues and related concerns of international development. Leaders and experts from the world’s scientific, business, government and civic communities convene in Stockholm to exchange views, experiences and shape joint solutions to global water challenges. Functioning as an open and dynamic platform, WWW enables participants to build capacity, form partnerships and review implementation, thereby advancing the world’s water, environment, health, livelihood and poverty reduction agendas.
Also taking place at WWW are the prestigious award ceremonies, which recognise the achievements of some of the great people and institutions that have contributed to making the world more water wise. In 2016, over 3,200 individuals and around 330 convening organizations from 130 countries participated in the Week.
