World Water Forum encourages global water conservation partnerships

Jakarta—The Special Staff of the Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) for Water Resources, Firdaus Ali, emphasised that the 10th World Water Forum in Bali, which will be held from May 18 to 25, 2024, will be a stage for establishing strategic and collaborative partnerships for global water conservation initiatives.

According to him, the forum will strengthen international cooperation. “Through this forum, countries can form strategic and collaborative partnerships to support global water conservation initiatives,” he said in a written statement Thursday, April 25.

In addition to opening global discussions, the World Water Forum will be a platform for stakeholders from different countries and backgrounds to share knowledge, experiences and best practices in water resources conservation and management.

Bali, as the host, is expected to inspire innovation in sustainable water management technology, such as through the Subak system, which Unesco has recognised as a world heritage in community-based irrigation systems.

Ali added, “The 10th World Water Forum in Bali will also formulate policies that support water conservation and efficient and effective water resources management.”

The forum is expected to raise public awareness about the importance of water conservation and the challenges faced in sustainable water resources management.

With a focus on water conservation, clean water and sanitation, food and energy security, and natural disaster mitigation, the 10th World Water Forum is expected to produce concrete steps in integrated water management for small islands, the establishment of centres of excellence for water and climate resilience, and the establishment of World Lake Day.
