IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition

Water for smart liveable cities

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.

The Congress & Exhibition is when IWA members in particular look forward to learning and sharing their knowledge. The 2021 Congress & Exhibition will be hosted by Denmark and all The Nordic Region countries. This region is a model for many of us in the way they manage to balance life and nature, to innovate, and to implement a sustainable economy. This is the spirit, the essence of the SDGs, and it is fitting that Copenhagen 2021 will be when IWA celebrates its 20th anniversary!

— Diane d’Arras, IWA President

The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark on 9-14 May 2021, and it will engage stakeholders and key contacts within the conventional water sector and beyond. The congress 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. 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.

BSR WATER platform will be actively participating in the Congress introducing results and outputs reached and achieved by the platform project. We will have a project stand, and also be present at the workshop, more information to come!
