The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), with support from the Scottish Government and GIZ’s International Water Stewardship Program (IWaSP), will host the first Global Water Stewardship Forum in Edinburgh, Scotland on 1st - 2nd November 2016.
The first AWS Global Water Stewardship Forum will bring together pioneering water stewardship practitioners and promoters from around the world, providing a unique opportunity to advance the understanding and impact of AWS Water Stewardship, and to contribute to the further development of the global AWS Water Stewardship System.
With the theme of “Building Participation and Ownership; Maintaining Credibility” the Forum will explore experiences from implementing and promoting the AWS Standard, a globally-consistent framework for major water users to understand their water use and impacts, and to work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management within a catchment context.
Through case studies from diverse contexts, sessions focusing on key topics, and expert masterclasses, the Forum will be a vibrant learning exchange on latest developments with water stewardship. The event will also provide a space to network with leading thinkers and exchange knowledge and perspectives for the advancement of the AWS Standard and water stewardship more broadly.
Water Footprint Network’s Executive Director, Ruth Mathews, will speak at this Forum. She will be on a panel and moderate a table discussion on 'Access to socially robust information for AWS Standard implementation’.
