In order to discuss topical water issues, exchange experience, ideas and develop new ways of cooperation within the framework of the 3rd High-Level International Conference on the International Decade of Action “Water for Sustainable Development”, 2018-2028, the stakeholders are provided with an opportunity to organize side-events.

Stakeholders may choose the theme of the side-event on their own, but it is considered appropriate if the themes of the side-events are in line with the overall theme of the Interactive Dialogues of the UN 2023 Water Conference.
The host country will provide the organizers of the side-events with a venue, assist with visa arrangements for the participants and arrange convenient local transportation.
Side-events can be organized by a wide range of stakeholders, including international and regional organizations, financial institutions, government agencies, civil society groups, academic institutions and the private sector.
