Amsterdam, 5 November 2019
Investments in infrastructure to address Europe’s inadequate progress on the water-related Sustainable Development Goals need to be guided by indicators and data that make clear how gaps in meeting the SDG targets will be closed, according to study findings announced today at the 2019 Amsterdam International Water Week Conference.
“There is a lot of attention for nature-based solutions,” says Henk Nieboer, Director of EcoShape, highlighting the current level of interest in coastal and marine schemes that take an alternative approach to traditional single-function engineering projects.
That level of interest is not yet matched by actual projects – something Nieboer hopes to help address with the workshop he is co-organising with Van Oord during AIWW.
A collaboration between the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank FMO and the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) aims to close the gap between finance and the Dutch water sector.
Being actively involved in the organisation of AIWW, we connected a group of enthusiastic young water professionals, the Future Water Leaders (FWL), to the owners of several Amsterdam Agreements signed in 2017.
The Leading Utilities of the World (LUOW) network is set to participate in the forthcoming Amsterdam International Water Week, including using the high-profile event as an opportunity to mark expansion of the group with the inauguration of new members.
The LUOW brings together some of the world’s most forward-thinking water and wastewater utilities according to 14 distinct innovation areas.
Being of great value for AIWW as one of our Sponsors, we asked Annette Ottolini from Evides to give her view on the AIWW Conference 2019 themes and topics. This year’s main theme is the ‘Implementation of integrated solutions by cities, industries, utilities and financiers: from cases to bankable projects.’

The province of Noord-Holland is surrounded by water on three sides and most of its surface lies below sea level. The southern part of the province is highly urbanized and the northern part is characterized by open agricultural landscapes.
Only a week and a half to go before the Amsterdam International Water Week kicks off! We’ve highlighted a few events you shouldn’t miss out on.
On Monday and Tuesday 4 and 5 November the AIWW Conference will take place in RAI Amsterdam. Delegates arriving in advance of the Conference have the opportunity to attend several artistic events and networking activities in the city of Amsterdam on Sunday 3 November.
“Jupiter Intelligence models potential risks from natural perils such as hurricanes, sea level rise and extreme heat and cold,” says Rich Sorkin, CEO and Co-founder of Jupiter Intelligence.
Sorkin and his team of experts from broad fields, such as climate science, computing technology, data science and academia use these models to better understand risks from climate change – in order to create a more resilient economy and planet.
