In 2018 the nine Forum themes are: Climate; People; Development; Urban; Ecosystems; Finance; Sharing; Capacity; and Governance. You can meet Simavi, IRC, Akvo and Wetlands International staff at the shared booth of the Watershed – empowering citizens partners- in the Netherlands Pavilion hosted by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) at the World Water Forum EXPO.

Watershed is one of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs Strategic partnerships and aims for improved governance for water, sanitation and hygiene and integrated water resources management so that all citizens, including the most marginalised can benefit from sustainable services.

Watershed will take up the challenge to meet the targets of universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) by 2030. Over the next five years, Watershed will advocate for faster results and contribute to strengthening the capacity of civil society organisations to influence national policies and to achieve universal access to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services as well as the water resources on which they draw.
