The main events of the Budapest Water Summit 2016 are the thematic plenary sessions with keynote participants discussing issues in the framework of six thematic plenary panels concerning the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals related to water (SDG6).
Each thematic session will be introduced by three keynote speeches to be delivered by the representative of a developing country, a developed country and an international organization or NGO, respectively.
Keynote addresses will be followed by moderated Davos-style discussions by a series of distinguished panellists, selected with a view to ensure a proper geographical balance.
The conclusion of each thematic session will be summarized by a rapporteur, who will present the relevant findings to the closing plenary session. The Budapest Statement 2016 will be adopted on the last day of the event before the closing plenary session. The recommendations and achievements of the forums will be included in the document.
