The World Water Forum, the world’s largest water related event, is held every three years as a

previous Fora in Morocco, the Netherlands, Japan and Mexico, the 5th World Water Forum will
be held in Istanbul, Turkey in March 2009.

Culminating over 2 years of preparatory activities, the Forum is an open, interactive, multi-

issues and propose solutions to address global challenges.

The 2009 World Water Forum, with its overarching theme “Bridging Divides for Water”, includes
24 different topic areas grouped under the following six major themes:

      1. Global changes and risk management
      2. Advancing human development and the millennium development goals
      3. Managing and protecting water resources and their supply systems to meet human and
         environmental needs
      4. Governance and management
      5. Finance
      6. Education, knowledge and capacity development

GVWD Board Meeting Date – January 23, 2009


The Political Processes component of the Forum provides elected officials with the opportunity
to discuss current global water issues and to identify sustainable water management strategies
and solutions that will help societies cope with global challenges such as climate change,
population growth, land use changes and urbanization. Through the Political Processes
component, the Forum seeks to influence water policy-making at all levels – local, regional,
national and global.

If the Board approves the participation of the Water Committee Chair at this international
conference, the intent would be to send one staff person to participate in the conference as well.
In accordance with Board policy, the Water Committee Chair would report back to the Board
following the conference.

3. ALTERNATIVES

The GVWD Board may:

a) approve Metro Vancouver participation in the 5th World Water Forum as outlined herein; or

b) Receive the report for information and take no further action.

4. CONCLUSION

For the past several years, international engagement has formed part of the Board’s annual
work plan, in particular with respect to issues of sustainability. The 5th World Water Forum
provides an opportunity for Metro Vancouver to participate with leading world cities in the
identification of emerging challenges and the development of adaptive management strategies
in an area of global importance - sustainable water resources management.
