The year 2013 has been declared by the UN General Assembly the “International Year of Water Cooperation”. The questions to be addressed in 2013 include: why do we need to cooperate, on what, for what aim, at what level, with whom and, not least, how?
Perspectives for building partnerships, advance future water cooperation and find solutions to the world’s water related challenges will be explored.
World Water Week will take place in Stockholm, Sweden from 1 to 7 September 2013 and is organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute.
