Update: World Water Forum 2018

Swiss Presence at the World Water Forum 2018

The Swiss Water Partnership (SWP) together with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) will be present with a Swiss Booth at the World Water Forum 2018.

World Water Forum Processes

Currently, the different submitted proposals for the forum’s processes (thematic, political, regional, civil..) are being reviewed. The results whether your organization’s proposal has been accepted will be announced in January 2018.

Swiss Booth

An official tender had been launched in October 2017 to select a partner for the booth design and construction. In the meantime, our partner has been confirmed and the booth will be produced in collaboration with the Swiss-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.

The call for participation in the Swiss booth is now closed. Many interested proposals from SWP members and SDC partners were handed in. A first version of the booth program has been drafted. The final program and further information on the exact booth slot for participating stakeholders will be communicated in January 2018.

In order to produce the program, we would like to invite all confirmed booth participants to send the following information to the SWP Secretariat until 19th January 2018:

Information about your event at the booth

  • Title:
  • Teaser describing your topic (around 100 words)
  • 1 high resolution picture
  • Do you wish to make a catering order for your event? Yes/No
  • Who from your organization will be present in Brasilia and who will be the contact persons for the booth
  • Events outside the Swiss booth: In which other thematic events are you involved in (as speaker or as co-convener) and when will the event take place? (title and date/time)

Communication Material

Besides the official Swiss booth program, a specially dedicated website will be created as a main tool for communication indicating information about the participating members, the Swiss activities in Brasilia and the Swiss booth program online. This will increase the visibility of your organization and can be shared easily in your network and on social media.
