6th International Symposium on Knowledge and Capacity for the Water Sector (Online)

The registration deadline has expired.

Due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19) this event will now be hosted online. Please visit the website for more updates and information.

The 6th International 'Symposium on Knowledge and Capacity Development: From Capacity Development to Implementation Science' will bring together scholars, decision-makers and practitioners to discuss the current and future role of capacity development within policy, operational practice and education.

The event will act as a catalyst to build commitment among participants, leading to future action and collaboration. For this 6th edition, the Symposium will pay particular attention to effective implementation and aim to move towards a concept of implementation science for the water sector. 

Despite great progress in extending water and sanitation services globally, our world is currently facing more, and more urgent, challenges around water security than ever before. We are still far from reaching the SDG 6 (and other water-related) goals on water supply and sanitation. The insecurity and risks associated with water scarcity, flooding, storm surges and sea-level rise are increasing. The combined forces of climate change and growing water demand propelled by economic growth could see the world tip from a predominantly water-abundant place, to one that is predominantly water-scarce by 2045. At the same time as the urgency increases, new investments and policies must navigate deeper regulatory, financial and political complexity and provide answers for a future that brings growing uncertainty.

Tickets to the three day event are 375 EUR and include access to our reception, lunches and coffee breaks.
