The AIWW Conference organisation has taken the initiative to organise a session on ‘the governance agenda of Climate and Water Resilient Cities 2030’, during the international conference Up Close and Liveable on Friday 21 June, 2019 in Amsterdam.

The session aims to rethink the institutional approach to ‘resilient, sustainable and inclusive society’ in water system management, in order to make cities more climate and water resilient. 

Special attention will be given to inclusive participatory planning and community involvement in designing and shaping our cities and governance systems. These designs should encompass the natural systems and water resources in order to create safe and resilient cities for everyone.

Speakers are among others: Roelof Kruize, CEO Waternet and Managing Board AIWW,  Kala Vairavamoorthy, CEO International Water Association, Natasha Nuujoma, Future Water Leader and Jose Luis Inglese, Chairman of the Board of Agua y Saneamientos Argentinos S.A. (tbc).

The international conference ‘Up Close and Liveable’ is part of the festival ‘WeMakeThe.City’ that will take place in Amsterdam, from 17 to 23 June, 2019.

Attending the ‘Up Close and Liveable’ conference is free. For more info, please click here.
