IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2023

The International Water Association’s next edition of the Water and Development Congress & Exhibition will take place in Kigali, Rwanda.

A forum for showcasing new science, technology and practical solutions across the entire water cycle that can work at scale in low- and middle-income countries.

With an overarching theme of Water, sanitation, and climate resilience – keys to a water-wise future, the 2023 edition will present solutions spanning water and sanitation services, the role of water in urban areas, the links between cities and basins, and the opportunities to achieve climate resilience.

Huge investments are being directed towards water and sanitation infrastructure, particularly in the Global South, and the event will encourage participants to share knowledge on innovations in science and practice, highlighting the opportunities of securing new and effective solutions in water and sanitation policy, technology, and management.

It’s an unique opportunity for water professionals from a variety of backgrounds and different geographies to exchange knowledge, experience and best practice that are accelerating progress towards ensuring safe, sustainable, and climate-resilient water and sanitation services for all.

The Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2023 will deliver a comprehensive programme focused on the water-related needs of low- and middle-income countries.
