    As the representative follow-up action of the 7th World Water Forum(WWF) in 2015, the WWP is the annual cooperative gathering organized by the Korea Water Forum (KWF), which brings together water-related governments, key high-level participants from the WWF host countries, organizations and relevant partners. All participants have shared their accumulated experiences and practical cases on water-related agendas and discussed their roles to contribute to the global water community.

WWP 2020 Outcome

The WWP is the annual cooperative gathering, which brings governments, key high-level experts from the World Water Forum(WWF) host countries together.

For this year, 12 high-level experts from 8 countries (Morocco, the Netherlands, Japan, Mexico, Turkey, France, Rep. of Korea, Brazil, Senegal) had participated to discuss on the framework for ‘the Call for Response’, the expected outcome of the WWP by 2021.

The key experts of each country shared their insights on the Focus area 1 and 4 of the Call for Action adopted in the WWP 2016(Focus area 1: Ensure Sufficient Safe Water and Sanitation for All, Focus area 4: Engage in Socio-Economic Development and Activities) to link the discussion to the four priorities of the 9th WWF.

Through this process, all participants expect to contribute to the process of the 9th WWF by disseminating the accumulated knowledge and experience of the WWF host countries to the global water decision makers.

KWF will host regular prep-meetings for further development of the Call for Response until the WWP 2021 scheduled in September of 2021 in KIWW.
