Abstract
"The 2009 World Water Forum in Istanbul gathered a huge number of participants to bring water to the forefront of the global stage. The World Water Council and their partners, including the Government of Turkey, did an admirable job to stage this massive event as a manifestation of the global water community’s diversity and geographic reach. In times when much attention is given to the challenges of current economic crisis, or on climate change, it is good that the world receives a reminder that water is still an unresolved challenge in many parts of the world, already today affecting the lives of more people than any of the other challenges."
