The Second High-Level International Conference on the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development”, 2018-2028, will be held in Dushanbe on 6-9 June 2022. The Conference will be entitled Catalyzing Water Action and Partnership at the Local, National, Regional and Global Level and will seek to accelerate government and other stakeholder actions and partnerships to advance implementation of water-related goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the Paris Agreement, the New Urban Agenda at all levels, and global efforts to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.
The Conference is based on a multi-stakeholder approach that brings together different state and non-state actors from water, finance, energy, industry, health, education, urban planning and agriculture sectors, including climate and environment. By involving a wider range of stakeholders, communities and major groups in the process to discuss the ways of achieving SDG 6 and other water-related goals, the event seeks to gather ideas and best practices, focusing on advocacy, networking and promoting partnerships and action on the implementation of water-related solutions at all levels.
To support this goal, the Conference will include a number of regional and major groups forums to support these intersectoral discussions.
