The 9th World Water Forum set to take place in Dakar, Senegal from March 22 to 27, 2021 is dubbed the “Forum of the Responses” thanks to its continued pursuit of strong outcomes with solutions for communities around the globe.
Moved by that goal, the Organizing committee has put in place the “Initiative Dakar 2021” that aims at collecting, supporting and showcasing projects from around the world that create real economic, social and environmental impact on the lives of populations.
While alignment of the project goals with the Forum’s four priorities is an important criterion, it shall, also, contribute to the attainment of the SDG’s particularly the SDG6.
Projects labelled “Initiative Dakar 2021” will benefit from international exposure, partnerships and possibly funding from partner institutions to the Forum.
Individuals, governments or non-government organizations, local authorities or institutions that carry a project deemed qualified, can submit their application in order to benefit from the “Initiative Dakar 2021” label.
The Call for Projects is open and ongoing. More information and the online application can be found here: https://www.worldwaterforum.org/en/9th-forum/initiative-dakar-2021
See you in Dakar in 2021 and bring your solutions.
