What Businesses Need to Know About the UN 2023 Water Conference

March 10, 2023

The UN 2023 Water Conference and the Water Action Agenda will take place at UN Headquarters in New York, March 22-24, 2023. Water is inextricably linked to the three pillars of sustainable development and integrates social, cultural, economic, and political values. It is crosscutting and supports the achievement of many SDGs through close linkages with climate, energy, cities, the environment, food security, poverty, gender equality, and health. With climate change profoundly affecting our economies, societies, and environment, water is the biggest deal breaker to achieving the internationally agreed water-related goals and targets, including those in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The UN Water Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Tajikistan and the Netherlands, will feature an opening and closing ceremony, six plenary meetings, and five multi-stakeholder interactive dialogues. It will also feature several high-level special events and side events organized by Member States, the UN system, and other stakeholders. More information about the UN 2023 Water Conference can be found here.

Network USA is hosting multiple in-person events during the UN Water Conference (March 22-24) in NYC. For more information about these offerings, please contact Network USA’s Head of Programs, Claudia Herbert Colfer, at
