The Week on Water for Development (WW4D) is a virtual five-day conference from 24 to 28 August 2020, organised by the German development cooperation (GIZ), that connects relevant stakeholders around key topics on water from COVID-19 to climate change. WW4D is also part of SIWI’s WWWeek @ home 2020. During those days, GIZ collaborates with more than 60 partners to present and discuss recent findings, publications as well as best practices from the field.
The five conference days are organised along thematic scopes, ranging from water and climate change (Monday), finance and governance (Tuesday), IWRM, Nexus and biodiversity (Wednesday), WASH and utilities (Thursday) to water and gender (Friday). In more than 25 virtual meetings, participants get to experience panel discussions and expert talks as well as to interact in dialogues among themselves. The aim is to encourage stakeholder exchange and learn from experiences in partner countries in order to face current challenges in the water sector.
