Welcome to 2015 World Water Weekin StockholmPhoto: Thomas HenriksonOn behalf of Stockholm International Water Institute, it ismy pleasure to welcome you to the 25th World Water Weekin Stockholm!This year marks a milestone in World Water Week’s development.In 1991, the first Stockholm Water Symposium was heldfor a few hundred dedicated scientists and researchers. It hasgrown into the world’s most important annual water meeting,attracting a record 3,400 participants from over 140 countriesin 2014. We are eager to build on that success, and this yearoffer our most ambitious programme yet, with a new formatfor sessions that cover current topics such as the SDGs, developmentfinancing, integrity, gender, sanitation, climate change,and energy. To frame the sessions, and the scientific core of theconference, the workshops, we offer several opportunities tostay in the loop: don’t miss the vision speakers at 08:30 everymorning, the podcasts from the SIWI Sofa, or the Daily Splashwith the junior rapporteurs. If you spend your day immersedin discussion and debate, be sure to read up on the buzz of theconference in the World Water Week Daily, published everymorning in print and electronically, or watch the live streamon the SIWI Media Hub.The Silver Jubilee, which concerns not only World WaterWeek but also the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize, will bemarked with special events, exhibitions and online campaignscelebrating water.Browse through this programme, or the online version atwww.worldwaterweek.org/programmefor more information, inspiration and to plan your week.Before this year is over, some big decisions need to be made.In September, UN member states will decide on SustainableDevelopment Goals (SDGs) to steer global development effortsin the decades to come, and in December, at COP21 in Paris,a new climate deal will hopefully be agreed. One of the SDGswill most likely be dedicated to water, and it is essential thatwe work for an efficient implementation of that goal. In theclimate negotiations, we believe that water needs to be at thecentre of the discussions as climate change mainly manifeststhrough water, either too much or too little.I hope you will take the opportunity to discuss these issues,and more, here in Stockholm. We want to believe that we havecreated the best possible platform for a stimulating exchange ofideas between policy makers and practitioners, scientists, civilsociety, and the private sector.But the week is not only work. We offer several social events,including the Royal Banquet and the always popular Mingle& Dance! With the Week moved back into central Stockholm,you will also have the beautiful quays of Stockholm withineasy reach.As always, a warm welcome to Stockholm!Mr Torgny HolmgrenExecutive DirectorStockholm International Water InstituteCover photo: iStock.Design: Elin Ingblom, SIWI.This programme is published by the StockholmInternational Water Institute and printed by Molind,Sweden.

OrganizerDuring the focus year on Water andDevelopment, Stockholm InternationalWater Institute (SIWI) organizes the2015 World Water Week in Stockholmunder the theme “Water for Development”.In order to widen the reach,enrich the discussions and encourageconvergence we have teamed up withthese key collaborating partners:WaterAid, The Rockefeller Foundationand UNDP.Photo: Jeppe WikströmKey Collaborating PartnersWaterAid is an international NGO that believes access tosafe water, sanitation and hygiene are essential to sustainableeconomic, social and human development. That’s why it wasnatural for us to accept the invitation to be a Key CollaboratingPartner for the 2015 World Water Week that has a specialfocus on water and development.WaterAid seeks to drive change across the world byinfluencing and working with communities, organisationsand governments so that everyone, everywhere can realisetheir human rights to safe water, sanitation and hygiene,with a special focus on the poorest and most marginalisedcommunities.For more than 100 years, The Rockefeller Foundation’smission has been to promote the well-being of humanitythroughout the world. Today, the Foundation pursues thismission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economiesthat expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity,and building resilience by enabling people, communitiesand institutions to be prepared for, withstand, and emergestronger from shocks and chronic stresses.Empowered lives.Resilient nations.UNDP believes sustainable access to safedrinking water and sanitation, and to waterfor a wide range of productive uses, are vitalto human development and to achievingmany of the MDGs and suggested SDGs.UNDP helps countries make progresstowards these goals by promoting effectivewater governance including environmental,economic and social aspects.4 2015 World Water Week: Water for Development


1991-2015: Silver JubileeThematic ScopeWater for DevelopmentSundayIntroductionWater and the development challenge2015 is the target year for achieving the Millennium DevelopmentGoals (MDGs). Although considerable progress has beenmade in halving poverty, the targets to achieve improved accessto key basic services during the first 15 years of this century willnot be fully reached. Almost two billion people will still lackaccess to safe water and about 2.5 billion people lack accessto basic sanitation. More than one billion people will still bewithout electricity and almost one billion people will go to bedhungry. They are largely the same underprivileged poor. Thechallenge remains for the world community in 2015 to formulate,commit to and urgently pursue a new set of Sustainable DevelopmentGoals (SDGs).Water is central to this challenge. Our lives and livelihoods,along with all other living creatures, depend on water. Withoutit we cannot sustain a productive economy to live healthylives, produce our food, energy and other basic necessities andcommodities. This is why World Water Week in Stockholmfocuses on these issues, and the vital role of water in addressingthem, from “Water and Food Security” in 2012, through“Water Cooperation” in 2013 and “Energy and Water” in 2014to “Water for Development” in 2015.2015 – The year for renewed global commitmentsIrrespective of how water will be captured in the future SDGs,the understanding that smart water management underpinssuccess across sustainable development is most important. Withoutimproved development and management of this finite andvulnerable resource we cannot achieve better livelihoods forall, and particularly for the poor, regardless of where they live.Poverty is appearing not just in the least developed countries butalso to a large extent in middle income countries and growingeconomies. Poverty, lack of dignity, as well as (lack of) access tobasic services, is a daily challenge for the underprivileged in everypart of the world. Therefore, the SDGs will need to apply to all.2015 is also the year in which a new global climate agreementwill be arrived at during COP 21 in Paris in December.The recent 5th Assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel onClimate Change (IPCC) has clearly shown the need for urgentaction on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and scaling up ofinvestment and action in climate change adaptation. A reviewof the Hyogo Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction will takeplace in Sendai, Japan in March 2015. Both of these processeshave strong links to water and its role in the three key dimensionsof sustainable development: economic development, socialprogress and equity, and the maintenance of a healthy and richenvironment.The Post-2015 agenda and Sustainable Development GoalsIn debating the water dimension of the SDGs, with a strong callfor a dedicated water goal, a broad approach has been advocatedthat recognises the following key aspects: drinking water, sanitationand hygiene (WASH), water resources, water productivity,water governance, water quality, improved resilience, healthyecosystems, mitigating water related disasters, managing wastewaterand reducing pollution. The need to highlight the roleof water in other SDGs, such as those addressing food, energy,climate, health etc., and preferably including some specifictargets, has also been raised. During World Water Week inStockholm in August 2015, the negotiation of the Post-2015development agenda and the SDGs are entering a final phase,therefore the main contribution of the Week will be to discusshow the water-related goals and targets can be most effectivelyimplemented, measured and monitored.New development pathwaysIn addressing the role of “Water for Development” inStockholm in 2015 it will be important to bring into focus howwe go beyond the discussions about global goals and targets toaddress the actual implementation of the new Post-2015 developmentagenda in the local context. If we are to progress beyond‘business-as-usual’ that did not fully deliver on the MDGs, weneed to think innovatively – together – about new developmentpathways. Our various communities, too often separated insilos, need to form new alliances, innovative public-privatepartnerships and social entrepreneurships for an effective andsocially accepted development agenda. This involves buildingbridges between traditional sectors and communities, such aswater, food, energy, health, and environment, as well as acrosspublic, private and civil society stakeholder groups. This may bea tall order, but the last few years in Stockholm have shown thatit is possible to build and expand such new bridges and alliances.The global to local change perspectiveThe Post-2015 development agenda will be shaped by key driverssuch as continued population growth, increased income levelsin many countries, increased urbanisation, growth in the emergingGeneral info FridayThursday Wednesday Tuesday Mondayprogramme.worldwaterweek.org 5


economies with a fast growing middle class, conflict and post-conflictchallenges, continued rapid move from agriculture-basedeconomies to industry and services-production, and acceleratingimpacts of climate change. These drivers will pose seriouschallenges to our water, food and energy security. Water willbe affected both in terms of availability and quality. Buildingresilience to climate change, whether in the form of long termtemperature and hydrologic change, sea-level rise, or morefrequent and severe floods and droughts and water-relateddisasters, calls for new approaches to mitigate risk and manageuncertainties. Such approaches must also consider how to bestpromote coherence and synergy between climate change adaptationand mitigation. While these challenges are universal, theyobviously manifest themselves differently in different countries,contexts and hot spots, with regions and countries characterisedby poverty and a fast growing population calling for a specialfocus. However, while many global drivers may be seen aschallenges, there are also important positive aspects to consider,such as the information revolution with new and powerful toolsand ways of communicating, as well as technological developmentto increase water and energy efficiency.The human and social perspectiveA growing disparity in access to water, food and energy, fromthe affluent top billion to the poor, hungry and disadvantagedbottom billion, and an increasing demand from a rapidlygrowing global middle class calls for new ways to manage waterand improve service delivery. Awareness about losses and wastein the value chain, as well as recognition of the value of the waterand energy we consume, need to translate into changes in humanbehaviour and lifestyles in high-income countries. Respectingthat there are critical limits to human transformation of thebiosphere and natural resource use, i.e. that there are planetaryboundaries, a more efficient use of scarce natural resources totackle the increasing global demand calls for an increasing shiftfrom supply to demand management. The human dimensionof land and water resources allocation, as exemplified in theincreased demand for arable land, and the social distribution ofwater and goods and services produced from water, needs moreattention. More focus is also required on water equity and theconcept of equality/justice in access to resources, be it betweenpeople in the local setting, or between countries and regions.The basis is the human right to access to safe drinking waterand sanitation. We also need to see, in a broader perspective,how smallholder farmers and other relevant and disadvantagedsocial groups can get secured access to water.The political economy of growth and developmentIn addressing growth, a quality perspective is needed:emphasising growth that is environmentally sustainable andsocially equitable. In the face of rapid per capita income increaseglobally and growing urbanisation, this perspective must alsobe fundamental to long term water security. The growth agendaposes several challenges: we need to properly understand whopays and who benefits, how water related trade-offs are dealtwith, and how we share, re-distribute and trade water and waterrelated benefits within and between countries. It also calls forimproved governance across scales and societal sectors. Forthese issues special focus on arid-climate growth countries,particularly low income countries and post-conflict countries isrequired, including a special consideration of how to optimisesubsidies for water services for the poor.The ecosystem and pollution perspectiveA sustainable Post-2015 development agenda needs to put thehuman development in relation to the ecosystems and theplanetary boundaries, taking a holistic perspective. Developmentdecisions must more accurately reflect the full value ofecosystems services to enhance livelihoods, reduce poverty, andmaintain critical resource stocks and flows – from land and fishto water and climate regulation – and to conserve biodiversity.The environmental dimension of the water, energy and foodsecurity nexus, and the green growth concepts, need to becomeexplicit. In a changing and uncertain world we need to increasinglylearn to build resilience by living with nature, and makeoptimal use of natural storage before and when engaging ininfrastructure development. Considering the high proportionof untreated wastewater in many countries today, we need toincreasingly base growth on accelerated pollution preventionand abatement efforts. Changing from ‘business-as-usual’ toa much more ecosystem conscious development path requiresa paradigm shift and recognition of the need to build publicawareness and political will to make such a transition.6 2015 World Water Week: Water for Development

SIWI SofaExhibitionHall AThis year’s World Water Week will feature an entirely new concept – the SIWI Sofa. TheSIWI Sofa is a cross between a speakers’ corner and an outdoor interview studio, wherejournalists will conduct interviews and facilitate discussions between experts on a varietyof water-related issues, in the exhibition area. The interviews include high-level speakers,representatives from water and development organizations, and public and private sectors.The sofa targets a broader range of decision-makers and interested public, as well as WorldWater Week participants.

Art at World Water WeekBending Water by Sven PåhlssonJubileeTentSven Påhlsson is one of Scandinavia’s most recognized contemporary artists.Using advanced computer animations, he is one of very few nordic artists occupyinga central position within the hyper-modernism, expressing the hyper-reality ofour world. His 3D animations, such as Bending Water, take years to create.The strange, alien formations of Bending Water, created by the constant movement ofwater, depict both the macro – planetary and galactic new formations – as well as themicro – genetic, molecular innovations. Within the continuous cycle of movement webegin to see natural phenomena and weather patterns such as hurricanes and tornadoes.Exhibiting for more than 30 years, Påhlsson represented Norway at the Venice Biennaleand has been shown at the Tate Museum as well as other prominent museums.Bending Water has been shown on the facade of the National Gallery and Museum ofContemporary Art in Norway, as well as at the National Museum in Stockholm.Photo: Sven Påhlsson18 2015 World Water Week: Water for Development

A streamthat always shows new expressions, depending on season and time of day, water flowand weather, the photographer’s mood …”I hope that the images will convey something of what I feel that the creek is tellingme. That we must see the relationships between local and global – and cherish ourwater resources in a sustainable and responsible manner”, says Hans Månsson.JubileeTentThursdayFridayGeneral infoprogramme.worldwaterweek.org 19
