Considering that the High-Level Symposium on Water (HLSwater) will bring together the fresh and saltwater communities and is part of the roadmap leading to the 2023 UN Water Conference, it has been decided to launch a call for written submissions, to enable broader reflection and participation.

If you are interested in having your voice heard on one or more of the themes of the Roundtables or on the overarching theme of the Symposium, you are invited to submit your organization’s written contribution.

The compilation of contributions received will be included in the outcomes of the HSLwater, as an Annex to the Chair’s Summary of the Symposium. This Chair’s Summary will be used to inform the 2023 UN Water Conference, and other sustainable development and water-related processes.​​​​​​

Don´t miss the deadline! Submissions are open from the 6th to the 26th of June.

All contributions should be submitted in English and have 250 words, maximum, as duly explained in the template. Only submissions specifically addressing the theme of the Symposium and of its three High-Level Roundtables will be considered and included as an Annex to the outcome document of the event.

Submissions can be presented here:
