Oxford University at World Water Week 2015

We joined other leading experts, decision-makers, enterprises and water professionals at World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden on 23-28 August 2015, to share knowledge and develop solutions to the world's water challenges.


  1. The Oxford Water Network is a thriving multidisciplinary community of researchers at the University of Oxford tackling global water risks. We recognise the scale and urgency of the challenge and are leveraging our research and teaching expertise to make a difference.
  2. The theme of World Water Week 2015 was 'Water for Development', very timely for us given the recent launch of our global seven-year research programme REACH which addresses water security risks in Africa and South Asia. It was great to meet so many others that share our vision of improving the lives of poor, vulnerable and marginalised people across the world.
  3. Hot off the press, our brochures give a snapshot of what our 100+ researchers are doing to address real-world water challenges. If you would like one sent to you, email enquiries@water.ox.ac.uk
  4. The highlight of our week was a session we led on sustainable finance for universal rural water services, in collaboration with UNICEF and other partners. We had fresh insights to share on this topic, launching two new reports based on ongoing research in Kenya.
