Diálogos Regionales del Agua 2024

The event will feature the participation of the Presidential Appointee of Honduras, the Foreign Minister of Costa Rica, Ministers and Deputy Ministers, and representatives from 18 countries in the region, as well as over a hundred representatives from the public and private sectors, international organizations, development banks, academia, and civil society. Additionally, there will be more than 1000 people attending remotely from over 30 countries in the region and the world.

The Regional Water Dialogues provide a high-level ministerial space with exchanges of technical experiences with a multi-actor approach, to promote good practices and to drive the achievement of SDG 6 in the region, which seeks to "ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all".

The sessions of this event are aligned with the priority areas identified in the Regional Action Agenda for Water adopted at the third edition of the Water Dialogues 2023, held in Santiago, Chile, in February of that year, and in line with the priority axes defined by the Regional Coordination Group for Latin America for participation in the 10th World Water Forum to be held in Bali, Indonesia.

Additionally, there will be a special session on water and agriculture, as well as a space dedicated to socializing and analyzing the regional preparation process for the 2024 World Water Forum, which synthesizes the main challenges and action proposals to address the water challenges in the region.
