Sustainable Tariffs for Water Services

Lisbon, Portugal // 14 March 2019 - 15 March 2019

Conference / Workshop

The conference aims to promote an interdisciplinary dialogue on the sustainability of water services tariffs, under different financial, environmental and social perspectives, including the legal and socio-economic aspects of their implementation.

The design and setting of tariffs intend to achieve several objectives that sometimes conflict with each other and are even incompatible. In addition, the form and structure of how the tariff systems are used do matter and can make a difference. In this way, the setting of sustainable tariffs for water services is a challenge, both in Portugal and internationally. Also, new and recent problems make the design of tariff sustainability more demanding and complex.

Climate change and the need for more resilient systems, new sources of water, such as those resulting from reuse, desalination and also rainwater, raise new issues that need to be discussed and analyzed for the implementation of best practices. The fact that the access to water is considered a human right also strengthens the social component of sustainability, which can never be separated from financial sustainability.

All these issues require adequate governance for the different countries to achieve the sustainable development goal (SDG), in particular the goal number 6, in a context and great pressure.

For this purpose, the adoption of sustainable tariffs becomes fundamental and is of the utmost importance.

World Water Day 2019 – Leaving no one behind

various // 22 March 2019

Conference / Workshop

World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. This year’s theme, ‘Leaving no one behind’, adapts the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind. Get familiar with the issues – why are people being left behind without safe water and what can be done to reach them?

Vienna University of Technology

13th IWA Specialised Conference on Design, Operation and Economics of Large Wastewater Treatment Plants

Vienna, Austria // 10 May 2020 - 14 May 2020

Conference / Workshop

This conference is the 13th in a series of conferences and celebrates in 2020 the 50 years anniversary of this great event. The first conference of the specialist group was held in Vienna and the anniversary conference will come back to this venue during a perfect time of the year – not only with respect the expected weather in Vienna but also because of the finalisation of the upgrade of one of Europe's largest wastewater treatment plants, the Vienna main wastewater treatment plant.

The conference will focus on all aspects of the design and operation of large wastewater treatment plants including economic topics. It will also discuss research and technology for nutrient removal and recovery approaches. It will bring together operators, designers and consultants on one side with researchers, university teachers, life cycle analysis (LCA) specialists, developers, technology and equipment providers on the other side.

Special emphasis will be given to active participation of young water professionals. The conference will provide a forum for ideas and opinion exchange and for sharing practical experience spanning the whole range from design and operation of large wastewater treatment plants to concepts of wastewater management in “Cities of the Future”. The scientific programme will be accompanied by a poster session. The poster session will provide a lively forum for discussion and idea exchange between conference participants and poster authors.
