‘Water...and nine billion people’ is the subject of the Amsterdam International Water Week conference. How do we achieve a safe, clean and sustainable water future in high-density living areas?
The conference focusses on the ambition to achieve breakthroughs in real-life water challenges, in particular in densely populated areas: from water shortage to floods, and climate change to medication in waste water. Cities, industries and water companies have contributed issues they want to resolve. At AIWW, these will be linked to solutions by experts and innovative technologies.
