W12 Congress is not another talk shop or trade show but a dynamic partnership that is action oriented and results driven, culminating in the world’s first W12 Framework
The W12 Congress will begin by assessing the issue of water crises through six expert task teams focusing on politics, economics, technical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, and civil society. These task teams aim to aggregate knowledge within and across thematic areas, sharing best practices from different geographies, ultimately developing the Major Cities Best Practice Water Framework: the “W12 Framework”.
Knowledge will be gained and solutions will be achieved through collaborations, networking, Q & A sessions and other participatory approaches.
The W12 conference will be held January 29 – 31, 2020 in Cape Town, South Africa, in partnership with an event held January 27 – 28, 2020 at the University of the Western Cape, and aims to be the first of a global movement featuring the major work of city governments facing water crises.
