5th Arab Water Forum
The series of triennial Arab Water Fora (AWF) is considered the most important water-related event in the Arab region. The 5th edition of AWF will be convened by the Arab Water Council during the period 7 - 9 December 2020 in Abu Dhabi under the patronage of the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Energy & Industry and supported by the League of Arab States (LAS) and the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation of Egypt (MWRI), in collaboration with national, regional and international partners. Providing a unique platform for communication, the 5th AWF is considered the stage where Arab water community leaders and key decision-makers thoroughly discuss water challenges that the Arab region is facing, being one of the most water-scarce regions in the world.
The Forum also represents an important milestone in the run-up to the World Water Forum (WWF) and a meeting point for stakeholders who wish to be involved in the Arab regional process to reflect the voice of the Arab region in the WWF, promoting priority areas for development in key water-related sectors and mobilizing key actions towards achieving water security for the Arab region.
The 2020 edition will feature 3 days of panel sessions, scientific sessions, and an Arab Water Expo, along with plenty of opportunities for networking.
