Gathering water leaders, experts and practitioners to share best practices, co-create innovative urban water solutions, and generate new business opportunities around climate resilience, resource circularity and digital water.
The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022 will gather water leaders, experts and practitioners to share best practices, co-create innovative urban water solutions, and generate new business opportunities. With the resumption of international business travel, SIWW2022 will be one of the first international water shows to be held in-person in Asia-Pacific since the pandemic.
The event, expected to attract over 15,000 physical and virtual on-demand attendees, will take place from 17-21 Apr 2022 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, alongside the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore. SIWW2022 will also feature an on-demand component that allows attendees to watch recordings of sessions delivered at the event via an online platform.
The 2020 United Nations World Water Development emphasised that water is the “climate connector” that allows for greater collaboration across the majority of global targets for climate response, sustainable development and disaster risk reduction. In conjunction, programmes delivered at SIWW2022 will provide insights into business, innovation and policy intervention to address the world’s pressing urban water challenges. With a focus on key thematic areas such as climate resilience, resource circularity, digital water and sustainability, SIWW2022 aims to spur collective action by the water sector to build resilience against climate impacts and create a sustainable water future.
Ryan Yuen, managing director for SIWW, said: “We are glad to be bringing back SIWW as an in-person event this April. This year’s event carries great significance for a few reasons. First, it marks the resumption of face-to-face business meetings and interactions after a long hiatus. More importantly, building on the momentum from COP26 last November, SIWW2022 seeks to present solutions and innovation to build resilience against climate change and prepare the sector for a sustainable water world.
“Key thematic areas during SIWW2022 will revolve around climate mitigation and adaptation efforts by the water utilities, cities and industries, in particular net zero, decarbonisation, nexus and circularity, and adaption to extreme weather events and droughts. We look forward to welcoming the international water community to the show.”
