Singapore International Water Week set to make a splash at the Marina Bay Sands

The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022 is set to return, 17-21 April, at the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore, alongside the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore. The event, expected to attract over 15,000 physical and virtual on-demand attendees.

SIWW2022 aims to bring together water leaders, experts, and practitioners to share best practices, co-create urban water solutions, and generate new business opportunities. This year, there will also be features on-demand which allows attendees to watch recordings of sessions delivered at the event via an online platform.

Programmes delivered at SIWW2022 will aim to provide insights into business, innovation, and policy intervention to tackle the world’s pressing urban water challenges. With a focus on key thematic areas such as climate resilience, resource circularity, digital water, and sustainability, SIWW2022 aims to spur collective action by the water sector to build resilience against climate impacts and create a sustainable water future.

Programmes and platforms at SIWW include the ‘Water Leaders Summit’, ‘Water Convention’ and ‘Water Expo.’

Ryan Yuen, managing director at SIWW, said: “This year’s event carries great significance for a few reasons. First, it marks the resumption of face-to-face business meetings and interactions after a long hiatus. More importantly, building on the momentum from COP26 last November, SIWW2022 seeks to present solutions and innovation to build resilience against climate change, and prepare the sector for a sustainable water world.

“Key thematic areas during SIWW2022 will revolve around climate mitigation and adaptation efforts by the water utilities, cities, and industries, in particular net zero, decarbonisation, nexus and circularity, and adaptation to extreme weather events and droughts,” Yuen added.
