It’s that time of the year: World Water Week kicks off in Stockholm on August 27th!
World Water Week is an annual gathering organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute, bringing together experts, policymakers, development practitioners, entrepreneurs, and more for a week of events, knowledge sharing, and networking. This year’s World Water Week will revolve around the theme “water and waste: reduce and reuse,” in recognition of the vital roles that water use efficiency, wastewater treatment, conservation, and water recycling play in bolstering water security throughout the world.
We hope you will join USAID and its partners for the following World Water Week events:
