Amsterdam International Water Week

Be part of the global movement. Be part of the Amsterdam International Water Week community!

The main theme of the AIWW Conference 2019 is ‘Implementation of Integrated Solutions by cities, industries, utilities and financiers: from cases to bankable projects.’ At the AIWW Conference leading innovators from municipal operators, industrial system developers, utilities and production chain designers will discuss the ambitious task to improve water system management. Together with municipal and industrial leaders and investors they will rethink the institutional approach to water system management with special attention for the two overall AIWW Conference-themes: a circular water economy and climate change adaptation. A key and crosscutting theme for the AIWW 2019 is: bankability. This year, the AIWW aims at unpacking the exact challenges and opportunities for investors and financiers interested in financing the big water actors and their projects.

From 4th till 8th November 2019, over 25,000 international water professionals and decision makers will share insights, solutions and innovative approaches. Matching concrete international water cases to the right international experts and leaders allows them to be both practical and in-depth, and so achieve real breakthroughs in the transition to a circular and resilient water environment for high density living. Bringing together a unique mix of professionals is conducive to the transition to a circular economy and the building of resilient cities. The AIWW offers an inspiring combination of events, including:  the AIWW conference, the Aquatech Trade Exhibition, excursions to Amsterdam and the Netherlands, an extensive young water professionals programme, and social events.

AIWW 2019 has identified the four main water challenges facing the cities and industries of tomorrow. These challenges are the binding principle in all cases, the in-depth labs and other contributions:

Energy transition and resource recovery;
Integrating water and resource management;
ICT & Data: artificial intelligence and smart robotica;
Blue-Green solutions for (urban) resilience.

Arcadis is a proud funding sponsor of this international symposium and we are pleased to have been actively involved since 2007. Thanks to our centuries of experience in the water sector, Arcadis’ specialist teams around the globe are uniquely positioned to provide safe and secure water technology that is built to withstand the demands of a rapidly changing world. Our Strategy to Implementation approach accelerates resilience within multiple domains, provides a safe environment for high density living, and aims to go from cases to bankable projects.    

Arcadis is proud to be a partner with UN-Habitat, the United Nations agency from human settlements aimed at improving the quality of life in growing cities; and a foundation partner of the World Economic Forum, an independent agency focused on improving the state of the world. As in previous years we are looking forward to participating throughout the whole week during this fascinating water programme. Arcadis will host and speak at a number of sessions we hope you participate in.
