The online event contributes to the implementation of the tasks defined in the United Nations’ „Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” programme. The seminar will focus on key issues of urban water management and sustainable development from both Asian and European perspective. It gives the participating experts the opportunity not only to discuss their experience, but also to share best practices and find solutions to the challenges.
The professional forum, which is held every two years, is hosted by the Hunan Province Department of Science and Technology, the Foreign Affairs Office of Hunan Provincial People’s Government and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) this year. HWP is among the traditional co-organizers of this event, while the organizers are the ASEM Water Resources Research and Development Center (ASEMWater) and the ASEM Cooperation Centre for Science Technology and Innovation (ASEM-CCSTI). The first plenary session of the seminar, titled "Sustainable development of water management", will be chaired by Dr. Károly Kovács, President of the HWP.
