For the first time, the organizers of the 8th World Water Forum expressed the will of issuing a declaration directly reflecting the debates and results obtained during the forum. This declaration, called SUSTAINABILITY DECLARATION (SD), is supposed to be adopted by consensus before the end of the forum and adopted during the closing session of the Forum on Friday March 23rd.
To ensure that the participatory process involves everybody willing to contribute, this open session is organized to present and discuss the draft declaration.
A draft version of the declaration will be distributed at the beginning of the session.
