Under the theme Seeds of Change: Innovative Solutions for a Water-Wise, this year’s edition of Stockholm World Water Week will bring together a diverse range of stakeholders to develop solutions to the world’s greatest water-related challenges, with topics ranging from food security and health to agriculture, technology, biodiversity, and the climate crisis.
