2016 World Water Week theme: Water for Sustainable Growth

The role of water for development, this year’s World Water Week theme, cannot be overestimated. Water is the foundation for all aspects of human and societal progress. While we need to ensure access to safe water for those 1.8 billion people who do not have it today, we must also manage the global rise in demand for water from growing economies by increasing water productivity, and find incentives for using it more effectively. Water security is both a condition for, and a result of, sustainable development.

The Online Press Room is a space dedicated to journalists covering the news and ideas that emerge over the course of the week – both at the event and remotely. Here, we provide you with webcasts of the top events, important press releases and news as well as lists of press events, key speakers and experts.

To make your journey around these resources simpler, we have created a new section called ‘WWW Trending’. Here, press resources will be packaged under emerging trend headlines informed by the Weeks content. This means that you can get right to the heart of an issue by finding the connected people, releases and activities happening during the Week. WWW Trending will be continually updated, in advance of and during the Week, so make sure to bookmark us!
