DWFI’s executive director serves on the World Water Council (WWC) Board of Governors with the director of research serving as assistant governor. As a member of this group, DWFI is engaged in planning the 9th World Water Forum (WWF) in Dakar, Senegal, which at the time of writing, was scheduled for March 22–27, 2021. Planning for the forum continues, with consideration for the challenges presented by COVID-19. The most recent WWC board meeting was virtual, and the second stakeholders consultation meeting, which had been scheduled for July, was replaced with a virtual collaborative platform for the main working groups. In addition, DWFI’s executive director was also recently re-elected to the Global Framework on Water Scarcity in Agriculture (WASAG), an international partnership focused on addressing water and food security.
