About IWA 2018 Tokyo

The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition brings together over 5,500 water, environment, and related professionals from more than 100 countries. Connecting people from across water and environment fields, it showcases successful examples of delivering clean water to growing populations, reducing pollution in river systems, proper industrial water management, public-private partnerships for service delivery, new policies and regulations, and benchmarking of water and wastewater service providers. The Congress presents the collective knowledge and know-how through leading keynote speakers, open discussions, presentations, poster sessions, showcasing latest technologies, dialogues on emerging issues, leadership forums, and workshops. 

Utilities of the Future

The management of water utilities is a key part of the fabric of our communities. Effective collaboration among stakeholders is an important feature of innovative and engaged utilities. How can water utilities optimise their operations and management to be efficient in their use of human and physical resources, as well as being innovative and adaptive to short and long-term changes in addition to future challenges?

Wastewater management and resource-recovery operations also face many challenges and opportunities. This includes municipal and industrial wastewater management, non-potable reuse, and effective recovery of energy, nutrients, and chemicals. What is the role of wastewater treatment technologies from small-scale to large WWTPs in delivering sustainable, circular water management of the future?

The growth of emerging contaminants such as nanoparticles, pharmaceuticals, and antibiotic resistance, threaten the global scale of safe and high quality drinking water. Potential disasters such as bacterial outbreaks, storm impacts and security events, as well as concerns around distribution systems (disinfection by-products, lead, and opportunistic pathogens) require that innovations move from science and engineering research into practice. How do we make potable water reuse part of the solution as more cities move to planned reuse to meet the growing community demands and provide water scarcity for megacities?

Cities of the Future

Solutions for optimizing water and wastewater systems at the urban scale include strategic planning, design, and maintenance of drinking water, wastewater services, and drainage infrastructure in urban environments. How can urban water systems deliver resilient, productive, and sustainable solutions to achieve water-wise and livable cities. 

Achieving water-wise cities of the future requires the involvement of many key stakeholders and professionals with different backgrounds. This track will explore how local (city) governments, utilities, planners, professional groups, the community, and private-sector partners can best work together to maximize their effectiveness and achieve better outcomes for their cities

Basins of the Future

For cities and utilities to be able to deliver long-term sustainable, resilient, and affordable services for future generations, it is important they are able to plan and manage the interrelationships and interdependencies across catchments, basins, and also within national and international contexts. How can water management at basin scale ensure the sustainability of services which cities and utilities rely upon from the water natural system?
