Why Water Is A Catalyst For A Green Economy And How To Make The Transition

AMSTERDAM, October 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Water  plays a central part in the water, food and energy nexus and therefore in the urgently needed transition  to  a green economy.

The IWW Amsterdam offers a unique combination of events: The IWW conference, the Aquatech Exhibition, the Industry leaders forum, the Young Professionals Programme.

Is wastewater a goldmine? What role do satellites play in watermanagement? Will we fill up our cars at the water purification plant? Are bacteria the new revolution in water purification? How do megacities around the world see water challenges of the future? Are there other ways to finance complex water projects? How can we live safely in low lying coastal cities and balance the water-food-and energy nexus? The IWW Conference offers the answer to these questions in a two day programme with many inspiring workshops  and sessions.

The IWW Amsterdam Conference is kicked off by a number of high level key note speakers: HRH Prince El Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan, chair of the UNSGAB, Dutch Minister Schultz van Haegen for Water and Infrastructure, mr Ger Bergkamp, executive director of IWA, the International Water Assocation.
