IISD Reporting Services - BWS 2016 The Budapest Water Summit will convene from 28 – 30 November 2016 at the Millenáris Park Theater in Budapest, Hungary, organized by the Government of Hungary in cooperation with the World Water Council.

The three-day summit brings together water professionals and representatives of governments, businesses and civil society. Plenary sessions will include keynote addresses and facilitated dialogues focusing on implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to water.

The Summit is organized as a platform to link political decision-makers with technology, financing and public support for promoting the practical implementation of water-related objectives in the SDGs and the Paris Agreement on climate change. A political statement recommending actions for a water-secure world – the Budapest Statement 2016 – will be adopted at the summit.

János Áder, President of Hungary, will open proceedings on 28 November. Seven high-level panel discussions will take place during the summit, including a special session on water in the context of climate change. The sessions will feature members of the High-Level Panel on Water, a joint UN-World Bank initiative launched in January 2016 with the support and membership of country leaders who are working to mobilize support for implementation of global water goals.

Several events are taking place in parallel to the plenary sessions, including a Sustainable Water Solutions Expo, a Science-Technology Forum, a Youth Forum, a Civil Forum, and a Women’s Forum.
