At WCC&E 2020 in Copenhagen we will engage in and build commitment for action on three topics: Urban Water Charter Water, Energy & Food Recruitment and summer camps for Young Water Professionals
Copenhagen can provide a platform for further implementation and development of the Urban Water Charter, which is to be launched by IWA in 2016. The WWC&E 2020 Conference can function as an important stepping stone in the process towards improving urban water governance, to follow up from previous events, also at World Water Forum and UN conferences, and prepare discussions towards World Water Forum in 2021.
An update and expansion of the IWA Water and Energy Declaration can be developed as an outcome of the 1st IWA Water & Energy Conference in Copenhagen 2009. We propose now to include the water, food and energy nexus in the context of climate change and link to the IWA Water, Climate and Energy Programme.
The creation of a recruitment platform will be developed in liaison with the IWA Young Water Professionals and will include a summer camp arrangement. Our active Danish chapter of Young Water Professionals will contribute to recruitment activities and also to deliver an interesting technical and social program for YWP delegates. Read more at ywp.dk
