As part of SIWI’s WWWeek@home 2020, the Week on Water for Development (WW4D) connects stakeholders and offers a virtual platform for exchange on key water topics. From August 24th to 28th, participants get the chance to connect, exchange and discuss with experts and practitioners from the field during panel discussion, expert talks and in interactive dialogues.

The five-day event series focusses especially on recent key concerns, such as the impacts of COVID-19 and climate change on water and sanitation. During WW4D, GIZ collaborates with more than 60 partners and features exciting speakers to present and discuss recent findings, publications as well as best practices from the field.

The conference is divided into five thematic days: Water and climate change (Monday); Finance and governance (Tuesday); IWRM, Nexus and biodiversity (Wednesday); WASH and utilities (Thursday); Water integrity and gender (Friday).  Experiences from India, Jordan, Uganda and Thailand among others will be shared.
