World Water Partnership
The World Water Partnership, a representative follow-up from the 7th World Water Forum, is an annual gathering, which put together representatives of each World Water Forum such as water related governments, organizations and relevant partners. Based on the core value of the 7th World Water Forum, it intends to share experiences of the World Water Forum host countries on water-related themes and provide sustainable implementation of key water initiatives.
By establishing the best cases of leadership in the water sector promoting cooperation among the host countries and the next host country, the main theme of the World Water Partnership will be linked to the preparation process of the 9th World Water Forum to secure the sustainability of the forum and contribute to the next World Water Forum.

KIWW2019 Previous Outcome
The participants from the previous and the next host countries of the World Water Forum including Morocco, Japan, Turkey, France, Rep. of Korea, Brazil, Senegal along with the World Water Council strived for building a consensus on deriving the best ways of contributing to the global water community through the World Water Forum process. All high-level participants discussed the pragmatic path to make a contribution based on accumulated know-hows and lessons and learnt from the previous World Water Forum to the next World Water Forum in Dakar, which will be boiled down to working with focal points of each of the host countries who have participated in the World Water Partnership 2019. In addition, Korea Water Forum, the secretariat of KIWW, and the co-host of the Forum, the World Water Council will jointly take a role as a coordinator for this process in order to strengthen the partnership and draw the results out of the discussion between the host countries.
The future direction of World Water Partnership will be more specified through discussion with the World Water Council and WWP 2019 participants after sharing of the result and collecting additional opinions until the next World Water Partnership in 2020.
