8th World Water Forum, dates: 18-23 March 2018 location: Brasilia, Distrito Federal
The World Water Forum is organized by the World Water Council (WWC) with the goal of enhancing dialogue of the decision-making process on water at the global level, seeking to achieve the rational and sustainable use of this resource. Given its political, technical and institutional scope, one of the Forum’s main features is the open, democratic participation of actors drawn from different sectors. The World Water Council organizes the Forum every three years together with the respective host country and city. To date, there have been seven editions of the World Water Forum, in different countries on four different continents. Brazil will be hosting the 8th edition of the World Water Forum. It will be the first time the event is held in the Southern Hemisphere.
