FAO Rome Water Dialogue 2023

FAO rome water dialogue 2023 text

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will hold its second Rome Water Dialogue from 4-5 October 2023.

Following the first edition of the Rome Water Dialogue hosted by FAO in November 2022, and building on the UN 2023 Water Conference, FAO has set the theme of the second Rome Water Dialogue as "Water resources management for the four betters: better production, better nutrition, better environment and better life, to achieve Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals".

Given the importance of the integrated management of water, soils and land resources, the Rome Water Dialogue 2023 will coincide with the "Global Symposium on Soil and Water". This will enable technical exchange among participants of the two events with the reporting and closing plenary session jointly organized to provide an opportunity for cross-fertilization and exchange on the technical discussions and outcomes from both events.

This will be a two day event, open to water experts and representatives from national governments, internal organizations, NGOs, financing institutions, research institutes, the civil and private sectors and the media.
