The Singapore International Water Week is the global platform that brings policymakers, industry leaders, experts and practitioners together to address challenges, showcase technologies, discover opportunities and celebrate achievements in the water world.
Themed Sustainable Cities: Clean and Affordable Water, the Singapore International Water Week 2010 will focus on the need for efficiency and cost effective solutions to address water problems amidst a constantly changing environment. More than half of the earth’s population already live in cities, and the trend towards urbanisation is accelerating. As urbanisation continues to gain momentum, there is an urgency to address the water shortage issues before the situation deteriorates further and hampers economic growth.
The event’s flagship programmes comprise:
• Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize
• Water Leaders Summit
• Water Convention
• Water Expo
• Business Forums
