IWRA was represented in two important events hoted by the city of Gyeongju, Korea, last month. The first one was the 51st World Water Council Board of Governors meeting, on 25-26 February 2014. The second one was the 2nd Stakeholder Consultation Meeting of the 7th World Water Forum, on 27-28 February 2014. You can find more information about the 7th World Water Forum here.
In 2014 the Award is linked to a workshop at the University of Oxford: ‘Water, Food and Energy: Understanding and Managing the Risks and Trade-offs’ that will take place in June 2014.
The author of the winning entry to the Award will be invited to participate in this exclusive 4.5 day intellectual retreat attended by 35 leading researchers and water practitioners. First prize will include a travel grant (return economy travel valued up to AU$1500) and coverage of accommodation and venue expenses. All ten finalists will have the opportunity to have their articles published on the Global Water Forum and in a subsequent book. Entries close on April 22nd 2014. Further details and instructions can be found here.
Following a vote on 26 February, Brasila was selected as the host city for the 8th World Water Forum, in 2018. The vote is conditional upon the signature of an agreement between the World Water Council and the Government of Brazil, so as to specify the terms of their agreement. The World Water Forum is the world’s largest water event that gathers international stakeholders every three years and aims to set water firmly on the international agenda.
