The world is urbanising at the fastest pace in history with over 6 billion people predicted to live in cities by 2050. The urban sprawl and densification of the cities are putting immense pressure on the availability of water. There is an emerging consensus among leaders and professionals for a visionary approach to integrating water management and urban planning. One water management strategy for cities across the globe to expand sustainably, to operate efficiently and maintain the high quality of water is of paramount importance.

The 5-day conference and exhibition will feature keynote addresses by world-renowned water technology experts from both academia and industries, who will share, discuss, and dissect significant latest developments and scientific advancements related to various water issues. Water professionals are invited to submit and present their latest findings in parallel sessions focused on specific themes related to broad areas of the One Water Management strategy.

The plenary keynotes, keynote sessions, IWA Young Water Professionals (YWP) Program, Utility Leaders Forum, parallel sessions, workshops, technical visits, and networking events will be organised to offer you opportunities for sharing ideas, research and networking with delegates. The conference aims to strengthen the links between the scientific community and industries in order to identify and deliver common-ground, practical, and achievable solutions which will tackle our community’s water challenges.
