Every three years since 1997, the World Water Forum mobilises creativity, innovation, competence and know-how in favour of water. ...The goal of the 6th World Water Forum is to tackle the challenges our world is facing and to bring water high on all political agendas.

Marseille, France, hosts the sixth triennial water forum through Saturday.
For the 2003 Forum the Vatican prepared a document, “Water, An Essential Element for Life” and updated it for the 2006 Forum. The Vatican is participating again. Another update has yet to be posted in the Vatican’s Latest Publications page.
