“Focused on the thematic line "Water for Cooperation: Cross-Border and International Water Cooperation, Cross-Sector Cooperation, and Water Through the 2030 Agenda." Waterlution and its partners will bring to the conference some of their multisectoral work around the world. Case studies and shared experiences will guide dialogues that may incite new ways of dealing with water and innovation.”

Collaborative innovation is the essence of Waterlution’s work. In this event, a group of partners will share their experience that reflects not only a solid relationship by dealing with water issues to promote water security, but also are aligned with the principles of preparing young people to solve complex problems for the protection of natural environments. It’ll be an opportunity to collaborate with interactive case studies sharing specific technology, local action, capacity-building and entrepreneurship learnings, expanding the collaborative transboundary potential of these methods.
