The UN 2023 Water Conference, scheduled for March 22–24, 2023, will bring together over 6,500 people from across the globe. Only the second UN water conference (the first was held in 1977 in Argentina), the three-day event is co-hosted by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Republic of Tajikistan. It is no accident that the conference is scheduled to coincide with World Water Day on March 22. Organizations across the globe are engaging in events to mark this day. The many sessions and side events at the UN Water Conference will showcase the global momentum for addressing the broad challenges surrounding water, particularly efforts to further achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goal 6, “Ensure access to water and sanitation for all.” WRRC Director Sharon B. Megdal will attend, along with others participating through UArizona accreditation, including Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy Director Andrea K. Gerlak and UArizona graduate student Wilzave Quiles Guzmán. Megdal is involved in multiple sessions.
