The AIWW Summit 2018 is a special event organised to set the global agenda for the Amsterdam International Water Week 2019 that will take place on 4-8 November 2019. This additional AIWW Summit 2018 will be held on Thursday 15 November, when the programme will build upon the outcomes and discussions of AIWW 2017.
In the morning, there will be parallel sessions on monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals, Start-ups & Scale-ups, progress made on the Amsterdam Agreements, and the outcomes of the High Level Panel on Water.
Roundtables on many global water issues
The afternoon consists of a plenary session with keynotes by representatives of government, knowledge institutes and industry and 15 roundtables, all within a framework of the topics of:
Water efficiency and value
Resource recovery, finance, water stewardship, circular water cycle
Water management and resilience
Resilient cities, adaptive measures, monitoring & early warning systems
Institutional transition and governance
Institutional capacity, bankability of utilities, economic resilience
Innovative water system implementations
Micro-pollutants, asset management, ICT & data, desalination
A networking reception and a special Summit dinner (invitation only) wrap up the programme.
The dialogue at the AIWW Summit 2018 will result in a final position paper that will form the basis and inspiration for next year’s Amsterdam International Water Week, taking place on 4-8 November 2019.
