Does your country wish to host the next World Water Forum in March 2012? Express your interest now!
The bidding process was launched this month by the World Water Council (WWC).

For the next edition of the World Water Forum, the government of any country, in collaboration with a city, is invited to demonstrate its capacity to organise such an important event. In order to be considered for the next steps in the bidding procedure, a preliminary expression of interest should be received by the WWC Headquarters in Marseille by 1 June 2008 and must be presented or endorsed by a representative of the central Government of the country concerned, at the highest possible level.

The Forum is not just an international conference. It is a three-year process involving a great deal of
preparatory work on specific subjects, taking into account the perspectives of multiple stakeholders
from different regions. The thematic and regional preparatory processes help to propose concrete
solutions to the main water-related challenges that the world faces today.

The full announcement is available on the Council’s website: For further
