Posted: 2013-05-03

This year's World Water Week takes place in Stockholm 1-6 September 2013.

The Global Water Partnership is an official Collaborating Partner of the  2013 World Water Week in Stockholm, together with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Wide Fund for Nature. This year’s theme is “Water Cooperation - Building Partnerships”.

Creating partnerships around water resources management is the foundation of the GWP network. Celebrating water cooperation at an international level is therefore an important manifestation for what GWP Partners are doing at all levels from the local to the global.
