Organisations and individuals are invited to submit proposals for organising a seminar or side event at the 2012 World Water Week, or to send in abstracts for oral or poster presentations for the scientific workshops.

Submitting proposals for seminars or side events

Submitting abstracts for the scientific workshops

The deadline for proposal and abstract submission is 15 February.

This year, the World Water Week in Stockholm will take a closer look at global “Water and Food Security”. Increasing imbalances in the world’s water and food security situation are unfolding. Economies of countries as well as businesses are becoming restrained by the availability of water, leading to a rush for resources beyond national territories. Increasing floods and droughts together with volatile food prices are having direct effects on political stability and national security. At the same time there are great untapped synergies in the management of food and water. The management of these basic resources will have enormous effects on our future.

About the World Water Week
The World Water Week in Stockholm, organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute with FAO and the CGIAR as Key Collaborating Partners for 2012, provides a unique forum for the exchange of views, experiences and practices between the scientific, business, policy and civic communities. The Week focuses on new thinking and positive action toward water-related challenges and their impact on the world’s environment, health, climate, economic and poverty reduction agendas. In 2011, more than 2600 participants from nearly 130 countries attended the World Water Week and some 180 leading international organisations collaborated with SIWI in arranging the event.

The 2012 World Water Week will take place August 26-31.
