Indonesia expects the upcoming 10th World Water Forum (WWF), slated to take place in Bali in May 2024, to yield impactful policies beneficial for participating nations, as shared by Ibu Dwikorita Karnawati, a member of the forum’s national organising committee.

Bu Karnawati, also heading the Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), outlined that discussions during the forum would revolve around themes such as climate, water, food, energy, and health, strategically linking them with political considerations.

She emphasised that the forum aims to translate scientific insights into actionable policies, facilitating easier implementation of the forum’s outcomes across societies and nations.

Highlighting the three key processes of thematic, regional, and political discussions, Bu Karnawati mentioned Indonesia’s plans to encourage the formulation of a ministerial declaration by officials responsible for various sectors.

Additionally, Indonesia intends to spearhead the establishment of a Center of Excellence on Water and Climate Resilience, fostering collaboration among countries in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

Scheduled from May 18 to May 25, 2024, in Bali province, the 10th World Water Forum, themed “Water for Shared Prosperity,” anticipates the participation of 30,000 to 50,000 attendees from numerous countries.

The forum serves as a premier international platform bringing together stakeholders in the energy resources sector, including political leaders, government representatives, multilateral institutions, academics, civil society members, and business leaders.

Originating in Morocco in 1997, the World Water Forum has since evolved into a triennial event addressing critical global water-related challenges and fostering collaboration on sustainable water management practices.
