Information about 5th World Water Forum

The 5th World Water Forum (WWF5) will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from 16 to 22 March 2009. The main theme for the WWF5 is 'Bridging divides' which underlines the geographical crossroads between Europe and Asia, the Middle East and Africa, North and South, as well as the conceptual barriers among various water cultures, between rich and poor, developed and developing regions of the world. Please refer to the information about WWF5 at http://www.worldwaterforum5.org/.

Actually, WWF5 has already started its preparatory process. Japan Committee expects INWEPF's participation in the discussion about Topic2.4 'Multiple Use and Functions of Water Services', because Topic2.4 is consistent with INWEPF's activity theme. We would like to start the discussion with Topic 2.4 Coordinator, The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Please give us your comments on this matter.
