The first Budapest Water Summit held in 2013 clearly contributed to the adoption of a stand-alone Sustainable Development Goal on water-related challenges (Sustainable Development Goal 6 – Water and Sanitation). Thus the outcomes of the Summit – stated in its closing document, the Budapest Statement –, became an integral part of the UN sustainable development agenda. The event had more than 1,400 registered participants from 105 countries. It was attended by the UN Secretary-General, heads of UN agencies, more than 30 ministers, representatives of the world's major university centres and leading industrial companies.

The Summit covered all water-related issues in a complex and interconnected manner combining policy, scientific, financial-economic as well as governmental and non-governmental approaches and inputs.
