Nearly 10.000 water leaders from governments, utilities, academia, private companies, and international organizations came together in Tokyo, Japan, to debate on the world’s pressing water problems. The International Water Association together with the Japanese Partners (Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Bureau of Waterworks, Bureau of Sewerage, Japan Society on Water Environment, Japan Water Works Association and Japan Sewerage Works Association) are proud to have provided a strategic platform for the key stakeholders within and outside the water sector to discuss and co-create solutions to our global water challenges.
