Programme of the Budapest Water Summit 2016

 

The main events of the Budapest Water Summit 2016 are the thematic plenary sessions with keynote participants discussing issues in the framework of six thematic plenary panels concerning the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals related to water (SDG6).

Each thematic session will be introduced by three keynote speeches to be delivered by the representative of a developing country, a developed country and an international organisation or NGO, respectively.

Keynote addresses will be followed by moderated Davos-style discussions by a series of distinguished panellists, selected with a view to ensure a proper geographical balance.

The conclusion of each thematic session will be summarized by a rapporteur, who will present the relevant findings to the closing plenary session. The Budapest Statement 2016 will be adopted on the last day of the event before the closing plenary session. The recommendations and achievements of the forums will be included in the document.

In addition to the plenary sessions, parallel stakeholder meetings will be held, namely

  • the Science-Technology Forum
  • the Youth Forum
  • the Civil Forum
  • the Women’s Forum

The Forums are also invited to provide written contributions to the Budapest Statement 2016.

The Budapest Water Summit 2016’s Inauguration Session will take place at 9:30 am on 28 November at Millenáris Park Theater. According to our plans, the Budapest Water Summit 2016 will close its session at 5 pm on 30 November.

On the margin of the Budapest Water Summit 2016, a Sustainable Water Solutions Expo will be held as well. The Expo is intended to focus on sustainable, innovative, environment-friendly solutions in the field of drinking water production, water treatment and water supply.
