IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition
October 18 - October 24
The 2020 IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition will take place on October 18-23 in Copenhaguen, Denmark.
The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition is the global event for water professionals covering the entire water cycle. As the Congress rotates through cities and countries each event has an extra emphasis on issues of specific interest to the region.
There will be a strong representation and contribution from Nordic and Baltic Sea countries, making the IWA Congress & Exhibition a vital opportunity to learn about the Nordic water challenges and solutions, including participation in technical site visits.
The 2020 IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. It 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.
This edition 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. Participants will analyse, discuss and highlight solutions in high-level summits, case-study presentations, and examples of implementation and cooperation driving the fulfilment of the SDGs.
