Eroglu told the A.A correspondent that Turkey has assumed the leadership in regard to water studies in the world. Istanbul would also host a conference to be attended by ministers from several countries, Eroglu said.

The World Water Forum is the main water-related event in the world, aimed at putting water firmly on international agenda. A benchmark towards global collaboration on water problems, the Forum offers policy-and-decision-makers from all over the world the unique opportunity to come together to create links, debate and attempt to find solutions to achieve water security.

The 5th World Water Forum will be held in Istanbul in March 2009.
