The organisers announced on 7 April that the event has been cancelled because of the Corona outbreak. The next edition will be in 2021.

World Water Week is organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and takes place in Stockholm, Sweden on an annual basis. It has been the focal point for global water issues since 1991. The yearly event is building on SIWI’s mission to leverage knowledge and their convening power to strengthen water governance for a just, prosperous, and sustainable future.

World Water Week is foremost a collaborative learning experience, providing a unique forum and opportunity to facilitate the exchange of views, experiences, and practices between the scientific, business, policy and civil society.
