Cairo Water Week 2020

Cairo Water Week 2020 (#CWW2020) is held 18-22 October, under the theme “Water Security in Arid Regions" - the Road to Dakar 2021 - with five sub-themes overarching a broad spectrum of water security. It will be a semi-virtual event, and GWP will be represented.

The five sub-themes of #CWW2020 are:

  • Water security for sustainable development
  • Cooperation for achieving water security
  • Water-food-energy NEXUS
  • Climate change and water security
  • Innovative solutions for water security

GWP Senior Network Specialist Julienne Roux will talk about how the interlinkages between water insecurity and migration are approached within the preparatory process for the 9th World Water Forum, through the work of the action group on water and migration set up under the rural development priority of the Forum.

Additionally, GWP Mediterranean is co-organising several sessions during the week, focusing on facilitating investments in the water sector, the role of gender in water diplomacy and mobilising Young Professionals in the fight to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
