Water Dialogues for results

Water Dialogues explained

High Level Conference
1 JULY 2021, BONN

The Water Dialogues for Results are an initiative by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), on behalf of the entire German government. Together with other UN member states, representatives of the UN Major Groups and international organisations, the BMU recognises that the global water and sanitation crisis calls for an immediate global response. To that end, the BMU holds a virtual dialogue series that aims at accelerating the cross-sectoral implementation of the water-related goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. On 1 July 2021, the results of the international water dialogues will be presented in form of a High-Level Conference on SDG 6 in Bonn, as part of the official preparatory process for the Mid-term Review of the UN Water Action Decade in 2023.

High-Level Conference

Do you want to become witness of how governments, international organisations and policymakers pledge to ensure accelerated and target-oriented action to turn the tide on SDG 6 implementation? Follow the High-Level Conference on 1 July 2021 where the policy messages from the Water Dialogues will be officially presented.


In 2017, UN Member States announced the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development” to strengthen the focus on water and its interconnectedness to ecosystems, economic development and human wellbeing. The Water Dialogues’ process is part of the German government’s efforts to overcome global water challenges and accelerate the implementation of SDG 6. In view of the mid-term in 2023, it presents a unique opportunity to turn the tide on achieving SDG 6.
