Urban Water Agenda 2030

Following the successful initiatives at Leeuwarden (NL) and Bratislava (SK) in 2016, the Mayors & Water Conference 2017 will be held in Porto, Portugal, on the 29th September and aims to launch an Urban Water Agenda 2030 (UWA 2030).

This Agenda aims to establish a new platform for collaboration of cities on water issues, assisting them with managing water in an integrated and more sustainable way, and contributing towards the achievement of European Union environmental objectives.

The objective of the platform will be to assist cities to look for solutions to water problems, providing opportunities for urban revival and involvement of local communities as well as adopting smart solutions in order to stimulate economic growth and competitiveness.

European mayors and water experts, representatives of national and local government, water regions, regulators, policy makers, communities, utilities, water research institutes and other water experts are most welcome to participate.

The Conference is free to attend, but space is limited. Registrations have already opened.
