Conference Description

In order to be sustainable, water service needs to be resilient to manage acute and chronic disruptions. Natural and anthropogenic challenges include floods, earthquakes, refugee and evacuee influx, droughts, sea level rise, climate change, shrinking customer base, energy crisis, changing workforce, aging infrastructure, and pandemics.

This 7th edition of the JSWA/EWA/WEF specialty conference series will explore ways to make water services more resilient.

JSWA, EWA, and WEF have identified the following four principal themes for the conference to cover the topic of water sector resilience:

  • Theme 1: Resilience at all aspects
  • Theme 2: Resilience of water services for refugees and evacuees
  • Theme 3: Smart water strategies to strengthen resilience
  • Theme 4: Lessons learned from real life disruptions

This joint conference will explore ways to make water services more resilient. The intention is to share experience from across the world covering: real life examples of lessons learned from major events, innovative technologies and practices, and technical-scientific researches, which strengthen resilience of water service.

The conference will be held in person and digitally.
