All of us in IWA are relieved and thrilled that the countdown to the World Water Congress and Exhibition in Copenhagen has re-started. The Nordic region is a world leading hub for technology and innovation, making it the ideal location for the Congress; a space to inspire change, stimulate innovative research and for sharing of best practices for a water wise world. For those who are thirsty for the latest trends and solutions to build water back better, and eager to re-connect and broaden their networks, this Congress is the opportunity. I look forward to welcoming IWA members, water professionals and organisations from all over the world to wonderful Copenhagen in September, 2022.
This edition of the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition will engage stakeholders and key contacts within the conventional water sector and beyond. It will bring together core water sector groups, such as those focused on urban water and urban water services, as well as participants from industry and agriculture, architects and urban planners, soil and groundwater experts and hydrologists, social scientists, the ICT sector, the financial sector, and others. With a strong representation and contribution from Nordic and Baltic Sea countries, the IWA Congress & Exhibition is a vital opportunity to learn about the Nordic water challenges and solutions, including participation in technical site visits.
Held in Copenhagen, Denmark, the #WorldWaterCongress & Exhibition will report on the water sector progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The emphasis will be on SDG6, which is dedicated to water and sanitation. The event will also highlight and explore the interwoven relation of water with all 17 of the global SDGs.
