The 5th World Water Forum is being held in Istanbul between 16 and 22 March 2009.
The Forum is a unique platform where individuals from both inside and outside the water sector can interact and debate, creating broader awareness for water related issues and a resolve to find solutions. In addition, it provides the opportunity for Ministers, Local Authorities and Parliamentarians to consolidate their different perspectives with those of experts and civil society.
Kim Klastrup, Grundfos Group Senior Vice President stated:
Grundfos is among the proud sponsors of the World Water Forum in Istanbul. We find it very important to support major global events like the Forum because they help to put attention on water issues,water avalability, water quality and water resource management. It is natural that we as a leading company within water pumping, water handling and water circulation share responsibility - and support the attempts to join all good water professionals in their attempt to care for the water in this world.
Previous Water Forums were held in Morocco (1997), the Netherlands (2000), Japan (2003) and Mexico (2006)
