The Sustainable Water Partnership (SWP) will host a showcase at World Water Week (August 27-September 1) in Stockholm, Sweden. This global annual conference, organized by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), acts as a focal point for water experts, decision-makers, businesses and thought leaders concerned with water issues. This year’s theme is “Water and Waste – Reduce and Reuse.”
SWP’s showcase, “Delivering Stability and Benefits through Water Security,” will take place Thursday, August 31 at 4 p.m. Presenters and panelists will share methods to engage local leaders in water management and raise stakeholder awareness of water security risks. Following presentations from Eric Viala, Winrock’s SWP Director, and Betsy Otto of World Resources Institute, a panel of representatives from the private sector, civil society, scientific and development organizations will discuss the links between water security, development and stability. This showcase is open to non-World Water Week participants.
