14th IWA/IAHR International Conference on Urban Drainage (ICUD)

Praha, Czech Rebuplic // 10 September 2017 - 15 September 2017

Conference / Workshop

Since 1981, the IWA/IAHR Joint Committee on Urban Drainage (JCUD) has organized the triennial International Conferences on Urban Drainage (ICUDs). Recognised as the most important international event in the field of urban drainage, ICUDs are held in different parts of the world by groups of active researchers, selected and designated by the JC after a competitive assessment of submitted proposals. Since 2005, the Poul Harremoës Award competition has been held for the best urban drainage paper presented by a young author during each ICUD and since 2011, the JCUD Mid-Career and Career Achievement Awards for internationally recognised contributions to the field of urban drainage are granted.

The ICUD conference aims to present the latest advances and innovative approaches in fundamental and applied research on urban drainage, taking into account meteorological, hydrological, hydraulic, water quality and socio-economic aspects worldwide. Among its specific interests are urban water quality, sewer sediments, source control, storm water management, combined sewer overflows, drainage in cold and alpine climates, real time control of urban drainage systems and the data and models related to urban water. The ICUD strives to maintain its long-standing broad international recognition as a prominent platform for the advancement of scientific knowledge in the field of urban drainage. It considers its activities in the wider context of urban water systems, with the ambition of developing and promoting a sustainable and integrated urban water management.

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.
