World Water Challenge is an international contest for water solutions. As a follow-up activity of the 7th World Water Forum in 2015, it has been annually held in conjunction with the Korea International Water Week(KIWW), aiming to identify imminent water problems that the world is facing and to find feasible solutions to them.

World Water Challenge 2021 holds as one of the signature programs of KIWW 2020. This 6th edition of the World Water Challenge is expected to serve its role as an important platform to share not only innovative scientific/technological methods but also policy towards solving the defined water challenges around the world and to forge a broad network among the experts and stakeholders in the water sector as well as the diverse pool of solution providers.

Particularly, amid the ongoing COVID-19 situation around the world, WWCH 2021 will continue to deal with the special topic “Water and Health” selected last year along with five Main Topics to demonstrate a pathway to not only overcoming the current pandemic but also achieving Sustainable Development Goals.


  • The winners of the World Water Challenge will get cash prizes and trophies. The winner in the Best category will receive 10, 000,000 KRW (around $8,400). And the Outstanding model will take home 5,000,000 KRW (around $4,200).
  • In addition to that, winners will have the chance to be invited to the WWCH showcase during the KIWW 2022 and/or the 9th World Water Forum to share their solutions with experts from all around the world.


  • Anyone (as an individual or on behalf of an organization) who is interested in water is welcome to participate in the program.
  • Previous participants can again apply for World Water Challenge 2021 but with different ideas. Old participants with the same ideas/contents are not eligible.
