Mexico City, 22 March 2016
Call for Proposals of the World Water Congress 2017 to be held in
Mexico
 Conagua, IWRA and ANEAS invite you to participate in the 16th World Water
Congress of the International Water Resources Association IWRA
 Bases for participation are available in the Congress website
 The World Water Congress will take place from 29 May to 2 June 2017
The World Water Congress is a triennial forum organised by the International
Water Resources Association (IWRA), as a discussion platform that brings
together scientists, professionals and politicians across disciplines and sectors
from developed and developing countries.
The Congress promotes discussion on policies, management, development and
governance practices in the field of water sciences at local, national, regional and
global levels in an international context of rapid change impacting decision-making
of the various sectors involved in policy, performance and future vision.
IWRA maintains a cooperative relationship with Mexico through the shared interest
in prioritising the water resources and environmental management, highlighted in
various global conferences such as the 4th World Water Forum held in Mexico in
2006.
As founding institution of the World Water Council (WWC), IWRA approved for
Mexico to host the 4th Forum in 2006, represented by the National Water
Commission (CONAGUA). The WWF4 registered an attendance of 20,000 people
from around the world participating in 206 meetings under the theme "Local
Actions for a Global challenge".
IWRA subsequently strengthened its cooperative relations by participating in the
52nd Meeting of the World Water Council.
Currently IWRA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mexico to shape
and hold the 16th World Water Congress in Cancun, Mexico in 2017. Conagua,
representing the Mexican government, will initiate the preparatory work towards the
16th IWRA Congress.
