UN 2023 Water Conference

UN 2023 Water Conference
22 - 24 Mar 2023
New York, United States of America

The Conference will aim to inspire action-oriented commitments by stakeholders at all levels. These commitments will comprise the “Water Action Agenda” – a platform for voluntary commitments and new and innovative approaches.

The conference will include an opening and closing session, six plenary sessions, and five interactive dialogues, as well as side events organized by participants. The five interactive dialogues will be organized around the five accelerators of SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework – Financing, Data and Information, Capacity Development, Innovation, and Governance. These interactive dialogues will focus on linkages between water and: health; sustainable development; climate, resilience, and environment; cooperation; and the Water Action Decade.

The outcome of the Conference will be a summary of the Conference proceedings and new commitments, pledges and actions by Governments and all stakeholders towards achieving SDG 6 and other water-related goals and targets, compiled in the Water Action Agenda.
