The way we manage water and the environment are fundamental to our long term future, both in the UK and internationally. The urgency of climate change and the challenges of water, food and energy security, set against a climate of financial limitation, call for more integrated and ‘green’ solutions. The aim of the conference is to challenge and inspire the water and environmental community by sharing knowledge and best practice, which is at the heart of meeting key global challenges. In April 2010 CIWEM will hold a two-day Annual Conference that will address multidisciplinary issues across all areas of the global water and environment sector. There will be a mix of keynote speakers, offered papers, exhibitions and networking opportunities that will make this the key event for water and environment professionals.
