World Water Week is hosted and organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute and takes place each year in Stockholm. Every year, more than 200 collaborating organizations convene events at the event. In addition, individuals from around the globe present their findings at the scientific workshops.
Each year, World Water Week addresses a particular theme to enable a deeper examination of a specific water-related topic. While not all events during the week relate to the overall theme, the workshops driven by the Scientific Programme Committee and many seminars and side events do focus on various aspects of the theme. The 2013 theme is "Water Cooperation - Building Partnerships."
