Buenos Aires Report

Conclusions, Key Messages and Outcomes from the IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2017

The IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition, held in Buenos Aires on 13-16 November 2017, was a unique opportunity to focus on water solutions that address these challenges in developing and emerging economies. The Congress convened more than 3000 participants from 82 countries to share knowledge and practical experiences; and to build new partnerships that accelerate change to deliver a sustainable water future.

Kalanithy Vairavamoorthy, IWA Executive Director about the IWA congress. 
Water scarcity is one of the most pervasive challenges facing communities around the world; and water security is one of the most critical issues confronting countries and cities today. The pressures of rapid urbanisation, declining water quality, growing water demand and climate change, are driving water to the top of the political agenda. Leaders around the world increasingly recognise that water can be catalytic for raising living standards, driving sustainability and promoting development well beyond the water sector.
This year IWA organises the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition in Tokyo. Joins us and 5,500 water, environment and related professionals from more than 100 countries and offers new insights into how pioneering science, technological innovation and leading practices shape the major transformation in water management that is underway. #WorldWaterCongress
