Make the connection for new ideas:

Tomorrow’s water challenges call for a transition to an innovative, integrated approach. The AIWW conference ‘Integrated solutions for a circular economy and resilient cities’ is the platform for this debate. Cities take centre stage in the programme, which is divided into three sub-themes and cross-cutting themes:

  1. Urban utilities & the circular economy
  2. Sustainable production & industrial response: reduce, reuse and recover
  3. Urban resilience & adaptation to climate change
  4. Finance & governance: the preconditions for sustainable solutions
