Thematic Process T.3.1.Con
As risks to development are increasing, green growth strategy will gain support among countries. Green growth can be a solution to tackle the challenges such as unsustainable business-as-usual practices, excessive use of resources and deterioration of ecosystems. In particular, water, a vital component to socio-economic development and environmental sustainability, can contribute to making green growth happen.
In regard, each session under the Theme 3.1 explores how to address the current water challenges from different perspectives. Following discussions during the Forum week, the concluding session will collect key messages and encourage collective action for implementation. Design groups will make efforts to attain objectives and targets of the Implementation Roadmap by the 8th World Water Forum in 2018.
