Conference // Cairo Water Week 2021

Cairo Water Week (CWW) is considered one of the biggest water-related events at the national, regional and international levels. It is an annual event organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, under the patronage of H.E. Mr. Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, in collaboration with national, regional and international partners. CWW is not a one-off event, but rather part of a series of activities aimed at better connecting water organizations and wider water sector industries, regional interests, and communities. The fourth edition of CWW series of conferences, CWW 2021, will take place during the period from October 24 to 28, 2021 in Cairo – Egypt, and will address the main theme “Water, Population and Global Change: Challenges and Opportunities”.
