6th World Water Forum
Home Page  > + Forum Programme  > Sessions > Contributions


Through an open process for all interested parties, over 700 contributions to the session development process were received between August and October 2008. These contributions came from a wide range of sectors and geographical areas, and represent a great wealth of information. (Please click on the images for higher resolution)



These contributions were considered by the coordinators of each of the Forum’s topics for inclusion in the planned sessions. Efforts were made to include as many quality contributions as possible in these sessions. Contributions that weren't included in a session were suggested for other components of the Forum, such as side events, poster presentations or the Learning Centre. The decisions on each contribution are being made available through this page.
