SIWI launches the Stockholm Statement Digital Forum on Water issues

October 21, 2017 - 21:27

The Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) now launches an interactive Internet forum, the Stockholm Statement Digital Forum, to prepare for a paper advocating that water issues should be included as a Sustainable Development Goal in the post-2015 development agenda. The main purpose of the Stockholm Statement in 2013 is to inform and influence the General debate of the sixty-eighth session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 68) to be held in September 2013 and where the initial findings of the Sustainable Development Goals and Post-2015 consultative processes are presented.
SIWI has identified a set of themes which the institute believes are fundamental in guiding our route towards a water wise world. Through the digital forum, comments are now invited on which are the most important issues to be highlighted, such as Governance, Quality, Vulnerability, Sanitation & Drinking, and Water and Productivity.
For both the content and the legitimacy of this process, SIWI stresses the importance that the views of marginalized groups and individuals are also represented. The forum will be open for comments between 13 June – 14 July 2013. In July, all comments will be reviewed and taken into consideration whilst SIWI writes the first draft Stockholm Statement. This draft statement will then be published online in the Forum during the month of August for comments by forum users.  After editing and review of all comments by SIWI, the final Stockholm Statement will be presented online and for the participants at the World Water Week in Stockholm during 1-6 September.
