OSAKA — Water is everyone’s business, and so it is perhaps only natural that preparations for the Third World Water Forum — which starts later this month in the Kansai region — include activities to raise awareness and get the public more involved.

During the March 16-23 conference, 33 themes — ranging from floods and the relationship between water and poverty, to financing water infrastructure — will be discussed at some 350 sessions in the cities of Kyoto, Osaka and Otsu, Shiga Prefecture. A ministerial session will be held the final two days.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
