World Water Week, organized annually by the Swedish International Water institute (SIWI), brings together over 2,500 individuals from 200+ organizations representing national government, science, business, policy and civil society who are advancing work on the state of water sources, environmental health, livelihoods and poverty reduction. The meeting focuses on linking best practice, scientific understanding and policy and decision-making from a global perspective, but also considers regional development, political systems and climatic conditions.

Our role

CI’s team focused on profiling our growing portfolio of work in freshwater biodiversity, ecosystem management, ecosystem service provision/valuation and climate change mitigation/adaptation, forming collaborations with partners and continuing to support the biodiversity agenda in the Environmental Flows Network (eFlowNet).
