2016 is a critical year for addressing the role of water in the post 2015 development agenda. That is the agenda developed in 2015 through two pivotal events: (1) the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by the UN General Assembly, and (2) a new global climate agreement adopted by COP 21 in Paris with important implications for water related mitigation and adaptation to climate change. Organizers of the World Water Week thought that this could be the perfect agenda for this year’s conference. The primary focus was however “water for sustainable growth” theme.
