The demand for water and sanitation is greater than it has ever been. Urban sprawl and land intensification, along with climate change, have impacted local ecosystems and water infrastructure. This event will offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to chart new paths and reimagine how to address ongoing water challenges.

In each one-hour roundtable:
