Water and Development Congress and Exhibition 2017

Buenos Aires, Argentina // 13 November 2017 - 16 November 2017

Conference / Workshop

Since 2009, IWA has been organizing the Water and Development Congress & Exhibition to bring together the global community who want to make a difference. It provides an opportunity for our members - from utilities, consultancy firms, technology providers, NGOs, government and researchers - to connect to urban stakeholders and like minded professionals and identify solutions they can take away and work with.

Latin America is the most urbanised region on the planet, with over 80% of the population living in cities. Being in Buenos Aires later this year for the Water and Development Congress and Exhibition will provide an opportunity to see up close how this city has developed its economy, services and infrastructure. And this is important for urban leaders from other developing regions such as Africa and Asia who are entering an era of urbanization:

  • How do you get the governance right - finding the balance between national and local priorities?
  • What is the right institutional model for delivering water and sanitation services for expanding boundaries and growing populations?
  • How do you work with diminishing water resources, to service more users and ensure the financial viability of the sector?

The Sustainable Development Goals drive us to ambitious outcomes and the global water community is readying itself to meet these goals by 2030. At the Water and Development Congress & Exhibition, we will organize the regulators forum to discuss policies and regulations that support SDGs - for example, how to operationalize the human right to water and sanitation.

We will also bring together international financiers, such as the Inter American Development bank, and city and utility asset managers, to look at financing mechanisms for infrastructure that enables efficient water supply and sanitation collection and treatment. And in this year, the UN-Water year for Wastewater, we will bring together city and utility leaders for a special forum on wastewater management, that will chart a way forward for cities to take the lead in halving the amount of untreated wastewater and reusing it.

Regionalization of Water Supply and Sewerage Companies as a Solution for the Efficiency of Water Supply and Sewerage Sector: Case of Albania

The aim of this paper is to analyze the efficiency of water supply and sewerage sector in Albania. The study focuses on the current situation of water supply and sewerage companies for the entire year 2011, as well an analysis of factors creating premises for achieving efficiency benefits. For the purposes of this study an analysis of three performance indicators that have a serious impact on the financial sustainability of a typical water and sewerage company is carried out using the data from the Performance Monitoring and Benchmarking Program for all water companies in Albania. The data are calculated based on weighted average basis for groupings of water companies/utilities using the “population served” by the company as the basis of “scale”. The main result of the analysis is that the potential for economies of scale can exist in the case of Albania since 74% of water supply and sewerage companies serve a number of populations of less than 50,000 inhabitants. The result of the analysis shows that an increase in served population will normally be related to an increased population density, which also direclty contributes to achieving economies of scale and getting above a served population of 100,000 people are where economies of scale can start to make a real difference. In order to achieve this efficiency, the aggregation of companies and creation of regions may be the solution for this efficiency to be realized.
