It’s the world’s largest water-related event and will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, from 18 to 23 March 2018. Along with the World Water Council (WWC), the Forum’s mission is to promote awareness, build political commitment and trigger action on critical water issues at all levels. It also aims to facilitate the efficient conservation, protection, development, planning, management and use of water in all its dimensions on an environmentally sustainable basis for the benefit of all life on Earth. CEBDS is the leader of the sustainability focus group of the Forum that is going to happen for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere.
To create a more inclusive Forum, a series of three online discussions called ‘Your Voice’ will be held in 2017. Add Your Voice to six thematic discussions on:
- Climate – Water security and climate change;
- People – Water, sanitation and health;
- Development – Water for sustainable development;
- Urban – Integrated urban water and waste management;
- Ecosystems – Water quality and the subsistence and biodiversity of ecosystems; and
- Finance – Financing for water security.

The result of the ‘Your Voice’ online discussions will be brought directly to preparatory meetings for the Forum.
