Please note that only candidates 18-35 years of age will be considered for the positions as junior rapporteurs.

Question Title

* 1. The role of the rapporteur

The theme of the 2019 World Water Week is "Water for society - including all". The aim of the reporting from the Week is to extract and distil cross-cutting and future-oriented knowledge and know how that emanates from World Water Week. This is to be communicated to participants that could not attend all sessions, actors who could not be part of World Water Week and potential future attendees.

The main messages found will be presented during the Closing Plenary session on Friday 30 August, in the Overarching Conclusions published after the Week as well as in social media during and after World Water Week. The reporting will also feed into international processes on science and policy development.

Being a World Water Week Rapporteur is a time-consuming, yet rewarding and hugely important assignment. The task for the Junior Rapporteurs is to capture the essence of the discussions that takes place in the sessions of World Water Week and to draw conclusions of strategic interest for an audience of experts, professionals and policy-makers. The rapporteurs need to cover all presentations made during World Water Week.
