17th-20th October 2011, Dubrovnik, Croatia

The 6th GEF Biennial International Waters Conference, hosted by the Government of Croatia, will take place in Dubrovnik from 17-20 October, 2011. The gala dinner celebrating 20 years of GEF transboundary water results will take place on 19 October. Special workshops for GEF IW project managers will take place from 15-16 October.

The general objective of the GEF Biennial International Waters Conference is to facilitate portfolio-wide experience sharing, to solicit advice from the IW project portfolio on burning issues and to assist in building participant capacity in key management and technical areas.

This year the Conference will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the GEF’s establishment. Thus the Conference will be organized under the slogan Raising the Bar: 20 Years of GEF Transboundary Water Results, and will focus on water management issues and results since 1991. There will be sub-themes focusing on environmental finance (featuring for the first-time a roundtable on corporate and social responsibility with private sector companies), as well as considerations of the institutional & sectoral transformation.
