Hosted from April 12th to 17th, 2015, in Daegu and Gyeongju, South Korea, under the theme “Water for our Future”, the 7th World Water Forum stands out for the importance given to the “implementation” of solutions, based on roadmaps, and the establishment of a new Science and Technology Process focused on innovations.
The Forum is part of a global partnership initiative focused on water-related issues, offering an international platform for debates and expert contributions to policy makers and decision-makers.
Within the framework of the Forum, French water stakeholders (ministries of Ecology, Foreign Affairs, Agriculture, Health, Eau de Paris (Paris water agency), SIAAP, SEDIF, Coalition Eau, ACF, ESF, pS-Eau, Solidarités international, Secours Islamique France, Green Cross International, Suez environnement, Veolia, EDF, CNRS, CNES, IRSTEA, BRGM, ASTEE, AFEID, Office international de l’eau, AgroParitech…) will emphasize the collective added value of our country in the form of solutions.
They will also participate actively to the contributions of the forum towards the adoption of two major decisions by the United Nations in 2015:
