The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022 will be held from 17 to 21 April 2022 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Singapore, alongside the World Cities Summit and CleanEnviro Summit Singapore. In contrast to the SIWW Online 2021 edition (scroll down for NWP 2021 recap), the Water Convention 2022 will be held as a physical event. As one of the leading international water events on urban water management, SIWW brings together global water leaders, experts and practitioners to share and co-create innovative water solutions to meet the world’s pressing water challenges.
The SIWW2022 is set to continue to create meaningful engagement opportunities to facilitate business exchange, demonstrate thought leadership, and showcase the latest solutions and technologies through their signature flagship programmes. The Water Convention 2022 will gather professionals and technology providers from around the world to share their knowledge, practical experiences and novel technologies to address the current and emerging water challenges under the following themes:
Delivering Water from Source to Tap (Network); Delivering Water from Source to Tap (Treatment); Effective and Efficient Wastewater Management, Treatment & Conveyance; Cities of the Future; Water Quality and Health; Nexus and Circularity

The Singapore International Water Week 2021 hosted in its Innovation to Practice (I2P) series, a session co-organised by NWP and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Singapore on the 30th of June 2021. This session, called 'Adaptation in South East Asian Cities: Solutions for Heat Stress, Flooding & Planning an Integrated Vision for the Future' brought together resilience expertise in the Netherlands and southeast Asia in a joint exchange of solutions. The event was kicked off by a high-level panel of representatives from Singapore and the Netherlands, with Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb from the City of Rotterdam, Michael Toh from Singapore Public Utilities Board (PUB), and Henk Ovink, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs for the Netherlands.
The session showcased climate-resilient solutions and lessons learned for two of the most pressing challenges for the future of climate resilience in cities: flooding and heat stress. Additionally, this event took a closer look at the role of resilient and integrative urban planning and innovative climate adaptation solutions for urban development in coastal cities, sharing strategies on long term visions.
