Water Finance in the Mediterranean, side event in the UN 2023 Water Conference – Union for the Mediterranean – UfM
Mar 02 2023
New York, 22-24 March 2023. We are almost halfway the Water Action Decade, halfway the 2030 Water Agenda, and the UN 2023 Water Conference will be the midterm review of the Decade. The UN 2023 Water Conference will be taking place between March 22nd and 24th in New York, cohosted by the Governments of the Netherlands and Tajikistan. This will be a monumental occasion not only for the global water agenda, but more importantly for sustainable development and climate action at large.
The UfM has invited its member states to co-organize a side event on the topic of water finance. The Governments of Finland, Jordan, Morocco and Türkiye have responded positively to this invitation. The side event will provide high-level speakers for Water Finance in the Mediterranean. The UfM wants to portray how the Mediterranean, one of the most water scarce regions is cooperating to develop and implement a regional response to the water crisis.
Enhancing the financial sustainability of water management will accelerate the implementation of SDG 6. Not to forget that solving issues related to water can make a substantial contribution to attaining all the SDGs.
The exact date of the UfM-led side event will be shortly announced.
