Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) is a conference that will set the stage for finding integrated solutions for the circular economy and resilient cities. The conference programme will cover issues ranging from green roofs to smartphone detection of leaks, and will forge links between water and sanitation, flood and coastal management, food, agriculture, finance and governance.


Keynote speakers will include: World Resources Institute CEO Mr. Andrew Steer, Mr. Peter Joo Hee NG, the CE of Singapore’s National Water Agency PUB, Mrs. Monica Scatasta, Head Division Water and Waste Management, European Investment Bank, and Jan-Willem Vosmeer, Manager Corporate Social Responsibility, Heineken International.

A full list of speakers is available here


The conference programme offers seminars and workshops on three chief themes:

1. Urban resilience and adaptation to climate change, will focus on a spread of issues including flood resilient cities, innovative urban design and climate change mitigation. Workshops will concentrate on issues including flood resilient catchments, stormwater resilient cities, and managing urban water in the cities of the future. Mayors, city planners and major investors come together at the Resilient Cities Leaders Forum.

2. Urban utilities and the circular economy, will look at the opportunities for accelerating towards closing the urban water and used water loops, and the resources involved in this process. Sessions will cover issues including smart water loss reduction, stormwater management strategies, and resource recovery and the circular economy. Workshop topics include innovation in sanitation and smart water networks in 2020 (SWAN). At the Utility Leaders Forum, key representatives of the sector will set up a framework for the transition to a circular economy.

3. Sustainable production and industrial response: reduce, reuse, recover, will focus on the growing interest in turning water risks into opportunities, and the challenges of operationalizing the concept of water stewardship. CEO’s (Heineken, SAB Miller, etc) discuss the use and supply of water at the Industry Leaders Forum.

 

Session topics include technologies for industrial wastewater treatment and reuse, and water efficient food production; workshops will spotlight industrial water solutions and water footprint assessment and efficiency.
