World Water Week Stockholm

August 27, 2017 - August 30, 2017

World Water Week in Stockholm is the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. It is organized by SIWI and will this year address the theme “water and waste – reduce and reuse”.

Experts, practitioners, decision-makers, business innovators and young professionals from a range of sectors and countries come to Stockholm to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today. We believe water is key to our future prosperity, and that together, we can achieve a water wise world. In 2016, over 3,200 individuals and around 330 convening organizations from 130 countries participated in the Week.

World Water Week provides a unique forum for the exchange of views, experiences, and practices between the scientific, business, policy and civic communities. It focuses on new thinking and positive action toward water-related challenges and their impact on the world’s environment, health, climate, economic and poverty reduction.

During the conference, Andre Van Rooyen from ICRISAT Zimbabwe, will discuss experiences from a special series on small-scale communal irrigation in South-Eastern Africa on August 30. In the study, farming systems experts are calling for donors to avoid failures of the past by developing a viable, sustainable and inclusive business model for small-scale public irrigation schemes in Sub-Saharan Africa. This work is led by the Australian National University including partners like International Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Zimbabwe. It was funded by the Australian Center for International Agricultural Research and the Water, Lands and Ecosystems CGIAR research program.
