UN 2023 Water Conference 22 — 24 Mar 2023, New York

UN 2023 Water Conference

22 — 24 Mar 2023, New York

Water is a dealmaker for the Sustainable Development Goals, and for the health and prosperity of people and planet. But our progress on water related goals and targets remains alarmingly off track, jeopardizing the entire sustainable development agenda.

Uniting the world for water

The first UN water conference in a generation, the UN 2023 Water Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Tajikistan and the Netherlands will be a watershed moment to mobilize Member States, the UN system and stakeholders alike to take action and bring successful solutions to a global scale. To catalyse action, the Conference is seeking voluntary commitments, galvanized by the Programme, to the Water Action Agenda.

The UN 2023 Water Conference in March must result in a bold Water Action Agenda that gives our world's lifeblood the commitment it deserves.

António guterres, Secretary-General of the united nations
