High-Level Symposium on Water at 2022 UN Ocean Conference


The High-Level Symposium on Water, to be held on Monday 27 June in Lisbon during the UN Ocean Conference, is one of the preparatory meetings for the UN Water Conference 2023.

Trying to bridge and explore the interlinkages between Sustainable Development Goals 6 (“Clean Water and Sanitation”) and 14 (“Life below Water”), this Symposium will bring together political leaders and high-level decision-makers dealing both with “fresh” and “salt” water, to reflect on how to connect these two communities to guarantee an integrated vision of the water cycle.

The aim of the event provides an opportunity to strengthen the role of water and ocean in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement and offers a platform for presenting successful best practices and partnerships.
