Achieving Water Security and Resilience in Asia Pacific: AWDO 2020
08:00-08:45 Stockholm | 14:00-14:45 Manila | 16:00-16:45 Sydney
Adapting to the new normal, the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has transformed the annual World Water Week (WWWeek) in Stockholm into a virtual conference, dubbed WWWeek at Home. Held on 24 to 28 August, the theme this year was “Water and Climate Change: Accelerating Action” with a focus on innovation, science, and actions needed to tackle one of the planet’s greatest threats.
As in previous years, ADB participated in this year’s conference, organizing a session called, Achieving Water Security and Resilience in Asia Pacific: AWDO 2020. This follows a year of research, development, and consultations for the Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) 2020, including last year’s session at WWWeek 2019.
AWDO 2020 is the fourth edition of this flagship publication from the ADB Water Sector Group, and it is set to be released soon.
