Event summary: World Water Week 2021 is the worlds leading annual conference on global water issues. The theme of this year is Building Resilience Faster.

For 30 years, World Water Week has been the gathering place for change makers addressing water challenges around the world. World Water Week is not just the leading annual conference on global water issues, it is also a powerful movement for change. In 2021, World Water Week focuses on the major transformations that need to take place if we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and slash carbon emissions. This year’s World Water Week offers a record number of sessions, more than 400. The theme of this year’s World Water Week is Building Resilience Faster. Together solutions can be developed to address climate change and other water-related challenges.

The time to act is now and we need to act fast. Within a decade, we must rethink everything from how we grow food and generate energy to how we travel and use natural resources. This will require innovation on an epic scale and collaboration between people from all over the world with many different skills and backgrounds. Since all these transformations are closely linked to water, World Water Week has an important role to play as a meeting place for collaboration and learning.
