WaterLinks Forum 2018


By WaterLinks
August 24, 2018


The 7th WaterLinks Forum will be held from 25-27 September 2018 at the Unilab Bayanihan Center, Metro Manila. The Forum’s theme is: "Solving Asia’s Urban Water Crisis: The WaterFood-Energy-Climate Change Nexus". It is designed to provide urban water managers and policy makers with insights on the interdependence of water, food, and energy in an uncertain, but adverse, climate environment. These are expected to form the basis of integrated solutions to the worsening water crisis in urban Asia.

We expect about 300 participants from more than 20 countries. The high-quality technical sessions and workshops feature speakers and discussants who are global leaders in their fields. There is also an international trade exhibition on water, wastewater and related sectors. You will note from the attached draft program that we feature a half-day seminar on 25 September on “Megacities, Water, and Climate Change” in partnership with UNESCO.
