In the presence of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the conference will see
high-level plenary and thematic sessions take place as well as round tables and events on themes such as ‘Water and Children’, ‘Water and Women’, ‘Water and the Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States’ and ‘Water and Mountainous Countries’. “The 2013 Dushanbe Conference on Water Cooperation contributed, among other things, to raise the profile of water and women on the UN agenda. It is our hope that the 2015 Dushanbe “Water for Life” Conference will produce similar effects [around issues such as] water and children, least developed countries, small islands and mountain countries,” says Rahimov.
