◆Asia Focus in Stockholm World Water Week 2019
Asia Pacific Water Forum (APWF) and its partners are to present the regional pathway from Yangon to Kumamoto City in advancing water security and sustainability at the Stockholm World Water Week (SIWW) 2019. Themed as “Water for Society – Including All”, SIWW offers APWF and its partners a global platform to share the steps, achievements and remaining gaps to bridge as assessed by Asia Water Development Outlook (AWDO) and through four Asia Focus sessions:
1. Water cycle management;
2. Rural water and sanitation;
3. Governance and inclusive development; and
4. Finance.

The focuses are in line with the Yangon Declaration: Pathway Forward, adopted by government leaders at the 3rd Asia Pacific Water Summit (APWS) in December 2017. Materiality, Connectivity and Scalability are three important dimensions that guide the debate and discussion. The review and outputs will contribute to the 4th APWS in Kumamoto City of Japan, October 19-20, 2020.
