The High-Level Symposium on Water is one of the preparatory meetings for the UN 2023 Water Conference. The Symposium will bring together political leaders and high-level decision makers dealing with SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) and SDG 14 (life below water) to discuss ways to bridge and explore the interlinkages between the two SDGs.
The Symposium is co-hosted by the Governments of Portugal and Kenya, with the support of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and UN-Water, and will take place during the UN Ocean Conference in June 2022. The event aims to help strengthen the role of water and ocean in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change, and to provide a platform for presenting successful best practices and partnerships.
