What is World Water Forum?

Water is an element that is essential for human life. But around the world, there are a lot of problems happening due to the lack of water and hygiene. Because of this, all countries came together to acquire clean and safe water and solve the issue hand in hand, and thus created the World Water Forum.





Every three years since 1997, the World Water Forum was held after the World Water Day (March 22nd) in France, Japan, Turkey, and the Netherlands. It is a large scale international conference with more than 20 thousand participants from 150 countries including cabinet members, congressmen, and local governors.





This April when pretty spring flowers bloom, Daegu will be filled with the footsteps of people from all over the world.
And one more thing: around the area where World Water Forum will be held, Daegu will open line 3 monorail. Daegu’s lifeline Nakdong River will also have spring migratory birds to give great scenic views. 





Oh, you will visit Daegu to join the World Water Forum?
Just hold on for a while. We will show you great Daegu tourist spots where you can go while you’re at the World Water Forum. 
See you soon!
