Water Week Taps Experts to Think Outside the Vessel

The theme of this year's event is Water Futures: Sustainability and Growth

This year, participants were challenged to think "outside the water vessel," building on the integrated theme of the Bank’s Sustainable Development Network and exploring the challenges and options for good water management and improved water services into the future.

Topics with broader implications than just the water sector were addressed during the first three days while the fourth day was devoted to sector and thematic issues. In addition to opening and closing plenary sessions, the first three days will be structured around five themes:

  • Sanitation, Health and Environment
  • Access to Water
  • Better Governance
  • Adapting to Variability
  • Complex and Innovative Approaches
