· Coordinator :
Asia-Pacific Water Forum (APWF)
· Co-Coordinator :
Korea Water Forum (KWF)

Water is a fundamental resource and as such its sustainable management is at the heart of human security and the social and economic development of nations. Over the past few decades, several areas of the Asia-Pacific region have experienced notable progress in various aspects of water management, including access to water resources and coverage of related services. Due to rapid population, economic growth and urbanization, however, there are still significant shortfalls in meeting the region’s needs.
Under the Asia-Pacific regional process of the 7th World Water Forum, there will be 11 thematic sessions covering a wide variety of topics such as water and cities, water and food, and water and disasters, all of which are in need of the strongest response to provide suitable solutions as soon as possible.
The Asia-Pacific Regional Synthesis and Commitment Session will aggregate and synthesize the key messages and outcomes from 11 regional thematic sessions and generate a mutually agreeable list of topics of common importance to the Asia-Pacific region.
The Asia-Pacific Synthesis and Commitment Session will be organized by the Asia-Pacific Water Forum (APWF) in cooperation with the Korea Water Forum (KWF), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Educational, Culture and Scientific Organization (UNESCO), and the International Center for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Network of Asian River Basin Organization (NARBO), the Korea Water Resources Cooperation (K-water), the Global Water Partnership Organization (GWPO) and GWP Regional Partnerships (GWP CACENA, GWP SAS, GWP SEA) and the Asia-Pacific Center for Water Security (APCWS).
