On Monday, the 10th World Water Forum, a gathering aimed at fostering international collaboration in global water management, opened on Indonesia’s island of Bali. The World Water Forum will run until May 25, with hundreds of international participants joining the conference to address global water and sanitation challenges.

The 10th edition, held under the theme “Water for Shared Prosperity,” saw several heads of state and ministers in attendance, including Tajikistan Prime Minister Qohir Rasulzoda, Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe, Fiji President Wiliame Katonivere, and Saudi Minister of Environment Water and Agriculture Abdulrahman Al-Fadhli.

President Joko Widodo highlighted the “central role” of water for human civilizations as he opened the forum on Monday.

“Water scarcity can also trigger war and become the source of disasters. Too much water or too little water both can turn into problems for the world,” Widodo said in his opening speech.

“The 10th World Water Forum is very strategic to revitalize real collective action and commitment to realize an integrated management of water resources … Water isn’t merely a natural product, but a product of a collaboration that unites us, and therefore we must have collaborative efforts to preserve it.”

Loic Fauchon, president of the World Water Council, also urged global action.

The World Water Forum held every three years and organized by the World Water Council and a host country, includes Saudi Arabia participating in a special session focusing on its role as the next host of the international conference under the theme “Action for a Better Tomorrow.”

The Kingdom announced that it will host the 11th World Water Forum in 2027 in Riyadh.
