How does climate change impact the quantity and quality of water? What are innovative finance mechanisms in the urban sanitation sector? And what is the role of Water Operator’s Partnerships in providing technical assistance in developing countries?
Those and many more questions will be tackled during the Week on Water for Development (WW4D) from 24 to 28 August. This virtual five-day conference, organised by the German development cooperation (GIZ), connects relevant stakeholders around key topics on water. WW4D is also part of SIWI’s Stockholm World Water Week at home 2020. A special focus is given to recent key concerns such as the impacts of COVID-19 and climate change on water and sanitation. During WW4D, GIZ collaborates with more than 50 partners to present and discuss recent findings, publications as well as best practices from the field.
