The World Water Forum, 16 - 22 March 2006
In 1997 the world’s first water forum was held in Marrakech by the World Water Council, where it was agreed that a mandate was needed to develop a long-term ‘Vision for Water, Life and the Environment in the 21st Century.’

The challenge they set themselves almost ten years ago, has only increased in scale as meeting humanity’s needs for water in the face of increasing demand and depleting supply is now a huge issue facing many countries.

In 2000 the World Water Forum met for the second time in The Hague to thrash out what this Vision was and how it could materialise. It was noted that the world’s water resources needed to be managed to provide for future needs, and that responsibility and commitment was needed from the governments and stakeholders who had control over the policies which affect global water supplies. Central to this Vision are the principles of collaboration, partnership and innovation and the sharing of experience and knowledge of different organisations involved in global water politics.
