Knowing water better: towards fairer and more sustainable access to natural resources - KnoWat

KnoWat at the 9th World Water Forum


The World Water Forum is the world's largest event on water taking place every three years. It brings together participants from all levels and areas, including government agencies, multilateral institutions, academia, civil society and the private sector, and provides a unique platform where the international water community and key decision makers can meet to make long-term progress on global water challenges. 

FAO is a strategic partner of the 9th World Water Forum that will take place in Dakar from 21 to 26 March 2022. FAO co-leads on the theme of Rural Development and will organize high-level panels and technical sessions while contributing to a series of ordinary sessions and keystone roundtables. 

The project Knowing Water Better will participate in the below sessions. Furthermore, KnoWat will be featured in the events of the Initiative Dakar 2022

Finally, we invite you to have a chat with us at the booths of the UN System and the Ministry of Agriculture of Senegal, where you will find information on the KnoWat project. 

We look forward to meeting you in Dakar!
