5th Arab Water Forum

The Arab Water Forum (AWF) annual event is the most important water-related event in the Arab region where Arab water community leaders and key decision-makers thoroughly discuss water challenges that the Arab region is facing, being one of the most water-scarce regions in the world. 

The Forum also represents an important milestone in the run-up to the World Water Forum (WWF) and a meeting point for stakeholders who wish to be involved in the Arab regional process to reflect the voice of the Arab region in the WWF, promoting priority areas for development in key water-related sectors and mobilizing key actions towards achieving water security for the Arab region.

The 5th of the series will feature 3 days of panel sessions, scientific sessions, and an Arab Water Expo, along with plenty of opportunities for networking. 

ICARDA scientists will join the conversation on leveraging the untapped potential of food production under water scarcity and climate change in the Arab region, advanced technologies and early warning systems to improve agricultural water productivity in transboundary water basins, and climate and water security in the Arab Region.
