Amsterdam International Water Web
The Amsterdam International Water Web (AIWW, since 2011) is a global water leaders’ community, bridging the gap between today’s challenges and future needs. We see water as an enabler to accelerate resilient and sustainable development. This decade we focus on water as the starting point for implementing integrated solutions, making a substantial impact on SDG’s 2 (Zero Hunger), 6 (Clean Water & Sanitation), 9 (Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure), 11 (Sustainable Cities & Communities) and 13 (Climate Action).
