from 18 – 21 January 2021
‘Water and Beyond’ will deliver insights on how to strengthen transboundary cooperation, build broader partnerships and trigger water investments in support of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement. It will lay the groundwork for applying the European Union Priorities for International Partnerships in the water sector and will make the link with programming and the Team Europe approach.
The event will take place over four consecutive days, with high-level panels, thematic sessions and networking opportunities to facilitate contacts between participants with common interests who wish to foster ongoing or future cooperation.
Key speakers will include the EU Commissioner for Crisis Management, the Slovenian Minister for Development, the Portuguese Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, the Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation, the Associate Director for WASH at UNICEF, the UNECE Executive Secretary, the CEO of Water, the PoVE Water project (Erna van der Werff and Pieter Hoekstra) and others.
