IWRA’s XVII World Water Congress

Since 1973, the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) has held a World Water Congress every three years in various locations around the world. The 2021 edition is held from 29 November to 3 December in Daegu, Republic of Korea.

The objective of the World Water Congress is to provide a meeting place to share experiences, promote discussion, and to present new knowledge, research results and new developments in the field of water sciences around the world.

For almost four decades the World Water Congresses have focused on major global themes concerning the water agenda, and on bringing together a large cross-section of stakeholders for the development and implementation of decisions in the field of water.

The XVII World Water Congress also marks a milestone in the Road to Dakar in 2022, as many preparatory activities for the 9th World Water Forum will take place during the Congress and high-level speakers also attending Dakar will participate in this international event.
