'Integrated water solutions for a green economy'
By 2050, most of the world population will live in urban deltas. How do we face the many water challenges that will arise within these urban areas? The answers can be found during the International Water Week Amsterdam, established in 2011 as an event dedicated to integrated solutions. A unique combination of activities and events, such as the International Water Week conference, Aquatech Amsterdam, the Industrial Leaders forum and a Young Professionals Programme, will draw thousands of international water professionals to Amsterdam between the 4th and 8th of November 2013.
The International Water Week Amsterdam crosses the borders between water and energy, water and food, as well as water, spatial planning and architecture. It bridges the devides between coastal engineering, water and sanitation, policy, science and suppliers. The call for papers deadline has nearly passed (15th of may) and the programme is taking shape. Registration for the IWW conference opens on the 1st of June, 2013. The International Water Week Amsterdam is organized by the International Water Association (IWA), the Netherlands Water Partnership, International Water Conferences (IWC) and Amsterdam RAI.
