Last week, Global thought leaders convened in Stockholm, Sweden for the annual World Water Week. This year’s topic was “Water for Development” and during the week, the most relevant topics related to this theme were discussed – e.g. Financing, SDGs, Integrity, Gender issues, Climate Change, Energy, Sanitation, Food, Conflict Resolution, Water Management and more. During the week leaders and frontrunners were celebrated. See below to find the winners of this year’s awards.
Both the Global Opportunity Report 2015 and the Global Risk Report 2015 by the World Economic Forum pointed to water scarcity as the world’s biggest risk AND opportunity.
