6th World Water Forum in Marseille, March 2012
Next March 2012, 140 ministerial delegations, over 180 countries, 800 speakers and 25 000 participants are expected to
attend more than 250 conferences and over 400 hours of exchanges and debates at the largest water event in the world.
The ultimate goal: to raise water issues higher on global agendas.
The 6th World Water Forum ‐ Time for Solutions – is a key milestone on the road to solving water related challenges in the
world, from access to water and sanitation for all, to climate change and food safety.
“The 6th World Water Forum is to be the Forum of Commitments and Solutions and we are looking for concrete actions
towards solving the world water problems. We invite proposals which are feasible in restrained financial, social and
environmental conditions. The possibilities offered to the water professionals to interact with high‐level political decisionmakers
make the Forum an ideal platform for discussing the way forward.” Prof. Benedito Braga, President of the 6th World
Water Forum and Vice‐President of the World Water Council.
In order to address global water challenges, the works and discussions at the 6th World Water Forum will be guided by 12
Priorities for Action and 3 Conditions for Success, translated into common and measurable goals. These targets and their
roadmaps provide a strategic frame to the identification and replication of promising solutions and commitments.
