All convened events are the responsibility of the convening organisation. The content, format and programme are all to be developed by the convening organisation(s).
Available event formats include seminars and side events. Seminars have a duration of three hours. A side event session lasts for one hour and runs either at lunch time or in the late afternoon.
In order to ensure a diverse and dynamic programme for the World Water Week , SIWI will in several cases propose a merger between similar or complementary event proposals. Mergers can relate to topics, geographic regions, convenors and formats.
