Networking

Aiming at connecting and bringing together organizations and actors of international Geneva and Switzerland. The Platform is open to all actors interested by broader water issues, but will likely focus on a limited number of themes related to water security.

The goals include 1- exchange on the key developments of the sector, 2- exchange experiences and tools to reduce water, tensions/conflicts at local, national and transboundary levels.

The Networking will also act as a consultative body for the development and management of the Geneva Water Hub. Scheduled to have meetings every six months, in connection to special events or visits, and/or at key milestones of the development of the sector; a website will also be created.
