The well-attended session, which was webcast live, included high-level representatives from Germany and other Member States, civil society, international organizations and other major relevant stakeholders who discussed how to best capture the interlinkages between water and other sectors such as energy and food/agriculture.

Using the UN-Water Technical Advice 'A Post-2015 Global Goal for Water' as a point of departure, an open debate with the audience enriched the discussion.
