The World Water Forum is the world's largest meeting around water and one of the highlights organized by the World Water Council (WWC) every three years since 1997. Established in 1996, the WWC is now composed from over 350 members, including NGOs, public agencies, private companies, universities and financial institutions such as the World Bank. By organizing the World Water Forums, the WWC aims to "bring water high on political agenda", to "formulate concrete proposals, bring their importance to the international scene", and to "build a political commitment ". Whereas the main goal of the 6th World Water Forum, to be held in March, is to propose concrete solutions to water management and develop cooperation and solidarity in France, Europe and worldwide.
