World Water Week - Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action


A virtual adaptation of #WWWeek with a series of sessions around the theme “Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action.”

Date: 24-28 August 2020

Time: 14:00 – 02:00 (UTC+8) / 08:00 – 20:00 (CET)

Theme: Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action

Water is not just a central part of the problem – it is also a central focus for adaptive solutions. It is with this focus that our CGIAR partner IWMI launched its #water4climate campaign this year in line with World Water Day. 

To help bridge the gap between the 2019 and 2021 World Water Weeks, the Stockholm International Water Institute  (SIWI) organized a virtual World Water Week (#WWWeek) right #AtHome this year with a broad range of convenor-hosted sessions on water and climate. 

The event provided an opportunity for scientists, policymakers, and representatives of the private sector and civil society to foster new thinking and collaborative action on today’s most pressing water-related challenges.
