Cairo Water Week 2021

Call for abstracts until 15 April 2021

The fourth edition of Cairo Water Week (CWW) will take place from 24 to 28 October 2021 in Cairo – Egypt, and will address “Water, Population and Global Change: Challenges and Opportunities”. CWW is not a one-off event, but rather part of a series of activities aimed at better connecting water organizations and wider water sector industries, regional interests, and communities. The event this year will discuss population issues and the impact of overpopulation on common management of transboundary rivers and climate change for the first time in this series as they have a direct impact on the water sector.

The CWW 2021 is organised around five themes:

  • Water and Global Change
  • Advances in water management
  • Water and Society
  • Regional and Sectoral Cooperation for Water Security
  • Innovation in Hydro-Sciences


The five related themes and a number of sub-topics, will be addressed during the event through various plenary and technical sessions that will be organized by reputed international and regional organizations, which have an interest in such topics. CWW is an important platform for professional engagement, the exchange and sharing of ideas, learning from others and identify areas for partnerships and collaborations. The key events at which activities associated with the topic will be proposed, are several recent events and discussions that would highlight the links between water, population and global changes.The Call for abstracts is extended until 15 April 2021!
