Three princes join in global water debate

The Fifth World Water Forum was launched in Istanbul in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, HIH Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan and HRH Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange, Crown Prince of the Netherlands.

Dozens of heads of states and ministers, as well as thousands of activists, entrepreneurs, mayors, parliamentarians and business executives from all around the world have gathered for the weeklong World Water Forum, which is held every three years to promote ideas about conserving, managing and supplying water. Climate change and the impact of the global economic meltdown are key issues on the agenda this year.
