Water plays a central part in the water, food and energy nexus and therefore in the urgently needed transition to a green economy. The International Water Week Amsterdam (IWW) is a stepping stone in this transition.

'Integrated Water Solutions for a green economy' is the central theme of the week. From 4-8 november 2013, 25000 international water professionals and decision makers will share insights, solutions and new approaches. 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. Among the other key note speakers are the vice minister for infrastructure of Vietnam, the Governor of Jakarta, mr Gammeltoft of the European Commission, mr Wim Kuijken, delta commissioner of the Netherlands. Closing key note speaker is Ms. Eleanor Allen, Global Director Water, Arcadis, USA. High level delegations from forty countries will visit the International Water Week.
