Each year, World Water Week in Stockholm brings together experts and stakeholders from around the globe to converse on global water issues. Although World Water Week in Stockholm was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Stockholm International Water Institute, which sponsors the event, is coordinating virtual sessions.
The Pacific Institute will hold several virtual sessions for World Water Week from August 24th through 27th 2020. The UN Global Compact’s CEO Water Mandate, for which the Pacific Institute serves as Co-Secretariat, will hold virtual sessions on nature-based solutions, business resilience, a common water accounting framework, and more. The Pacific Institute will co-lead a session on climate-related water conflicts.
