Introduction to the forum

The Arab Water Forum is a tri-annual multi-stakeholder event organized by the Arab Water Council (AWC). The forum is a platform for all water stakeholders to meet and deliberate on the water issues that influence their daily life and have impact on their future. The scarce water resources in this region represent the biggest challenge, which is aggravated by fast growing population and global changes as in the case of climate, and water related disasters (floods and droughts). The Third Arab Water Forum (AWF3) will be held in Cairo, Egypt, in December 9 – 11, 2014. The AWF3 will convene around the general theme “Together Towards a Secure Arab Water Future” and IWRM will represent the central issue embedded in the specific themes and topics of the forum. The AWF3 will allow all water-interest groups and stakeholders to engage in debate about how far the current water policies and actions are successful to bring water security to the region, effectively contribute to food security and protect the environment. It aims at identifying policy adjustments and necessary mechanisms that could further promote cooperation between the Arab countries in the Water Sector.
