The overall aim of the webinar series is to inform water professionals and heritage experts about the Water and Heritage initiative and its activities that aim at recognition by water managers that water related heritage can contribute significantly toward water challenges. The specific objective of the webinars is to encourage national working groups to be initiated with the longer-term objective to mobilize support to have Water and Heritage discussed at the UN International Water conference to be held in New York in 2023, see the Chair’s Statement of the symposium ‘Water and Culture’ held on February 3 in Tokyo.
