Cofunded by the European Union

The Water4All and Water JPI initiatives will participate in the upcoming Sustainability Research and Innovation (SRI) that will take place in Panama. The SRI Congress is the world’s largest transdisciplinary event gathering the global sustainability community.

The themes for this year are:

  • Turning the tide for climate: collaborative action for institutional transformation.
  • Healthy and inclusive communities.
  • A peaceful planetary mind.
  • Latin America and the Caribbean Science and Innovation for Sustainability.

Water4All will organise in cooperation with the Water JPI an interactive dialogue as a side event to the congress that will aim at presenting these initiatives to international players and encourage an active dialogue with potential partners, particularly those from the Caribbean Region and South America.

The presentation of the Water4All & Water JPI initiatives will include:

  • Strategic orientations of the programme (thematic priorities, types of activities to be undertaken, key performance indicators, impact analysis of activities);
  • Science-policy work plan as a way to promote the uptake of results and proposed solutions in policy making;
  • Demonstration activities in areas selected by members and allowing the testing of innovative solutions;
  • Activities in international cooperation, science diplomacy and governance issues in transboundary river catchments.

The Water4All Partnership - Water Security for the Planet - is a funding programme for scientific research in freshwater. It aims to tackle water challenges to face climate change, help to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and boost the EU’s competitiveness and growth.

It is co-funded by the European Union within the frame of the Horizon Europe programme (a key funding programme for research and innovation). The Partnership duration is for seven years from 2022.

The Water4All objective is to enable water security at a large scale and in the long term. Its goal is also to tackle water issues in a holistic frame. 

All forms of life on earth need water. All human activities operate with this resource. Water is part of our everyday life. It is also integrated within urban and countryside landscapes. It is one of the most valuable elements we share with plants and animals.

These simple facts must be kept in mind to understand the Water4All ambition.

This resource is weakened in many places due to climate changes, and human habits. We know that we can improve the way we use water. Everyone has a role to play and especially the scientific research community.

Scientific research is the heart of the Partnership as It is a powerful tool to improve knowledge on preserving, restoring, and managing this essential resource. 

International cooperation is also needed as water has no borders on Earth and runs from one country to another.

Water4All brings together a broad and cohesive group of 90 partners from 33 countries in the European Union and beyond. This consortium gathers partners from the whole water Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) chain.
