Message from the Executive Director of Environment & Water Industry Development Council (EWI)

Khoo Teng Chye Executive Director, Environment and Water Industry Development Council & Chief Executive, PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency

Singapore International Water Week is the global platform for water solutions. It brings policymakers, industry leaders, experts and practitioners together to address challenges, showcase technologies, discover opportunities, and celebrate achievements in the water world. In 2010, the Water Week saw a record number of more than 14,000 participants from 112 countries and regions. More than 1000 delegates from 61 countries attended the Water Convention during which over 110 oral presentations and 80 poster presentations were made. The total value of announcements for projects awarded, tenders, investments into Singapore and R&D MOUs exceeded S$2.8 billion, up 27% from S$2.2 billion in 2009. We are now gearing up for Singapore International Water Week 2011, which will be held from 4 to 8 July 2011. Themed “Sustainable Water Solutions for a Changing Urban Environment�, the 2011 edition reinforces Water Week as a platform for exchanging solutions addressing the latest and most pertinent water issues as increasing global population, rapid urbanisation and emerging economies continue to put a strain on resources such as water, food and energy. Apart from challenges, these phenomena present immense market opportunities for solutions that not only address constraints stemming from resource scarcity but also promote sustainable growth. The theme therefore also reflects a broader focus beyond urban water solutions to other issues that affect the urban environment, such as climate change and the management of watersheds and river basins. Water Week 2011 promises to deliver value to delegates, trade visitors and exhibitors alike, with refreshing opportunities to promote practical and sustainable solutions to the water industry as well as water users in other sectors. With the many high quality submissions for the Water Convention that we have seen so far, I am confident that the Water Convention will be a rewarding experience for all. I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Singapore International Water Week.


Message from the President of the International Water Association (IWA)

Glen Daigger President, International Water Association

The International Water Association is delighted to continue its partnership with Singapore as a strategic partner of the Singapore International Water Week 2011, and co-organizer for the Water Convention. Into its fourth year, the Water Convention has rapidly grown in stature and prominence as one of the leading water events for water practitioners in Asia to meet, share knowledge and exchange experiences to improve water and wastewater services delivery. This aptly comes at a time when many urban communities in the region are grappling with unprecedented water supply challenges exacerbated by unpredictable weather patterns and are in need of implementable, practical solutions. As a global network for water professionals that harnesses the extensive knowledge of our diverse membership of experts to create innovative, pragmatic, and sustainable solutions to challenging global needs, IWA is proud to be working with PUB Singapore to develop the technical content for the Water Convention, and deliver a high quality programme to delegates. We invite you all as leaders in your respective fields to join us at this event to contribute your ideas and share your experiences so as to enrich the discussions at the Water Convention in SIWW 2011.


Message from the Co-chairs of the Water Convention 2011 Programme Committee

Harry Seah Director Technology & Water Quality Office PUB, Singapore

Darryl Day General Manager, Sustainability Power & Water Corporation, Australia

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2011. The theme of Water Week 2011 is ‘Sustainable Water Solutions for a Changing Urban Environment’, focusing on the impact of paradigm shifts in water management and climate change, on the urban environment. A flagship event of the Water Week, the Water Convention has seen three very successful years in bringing together working professionals from various aspects of the water industry and academia to share their experiences. As we approach the fourth edition of the Water Convention, we want to build upon previous successes to bring more solutions and shared experiences to the delegates. We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to your overwhelming response to our call for papers to the convention, where over 400 submissions from 50 countries were received this year. For Water Convention 2011, we will be introducing a series of focused workshops before the Water Convention. Through the discussions during these workshops, we would like to set the tone for the rest of the convention, for the benefit of speakers and participants alike. These focused workshops will address a wide range of water related issues and current trends in water treatment, distribution and reuse with a particular emphasis on Asian countries, discuss challenges in integrated river basin management, and share on the role of leadership and finance in water reforms. Another highlight this year to look forward to is the formal launch of the 4th Edition of WHO guidelines for drinking-water quality. With such an exciting programme, we believe that this year’s convention will bring more fruitful discussions. Please accept our warmest invitation to participate in the Water Convention 2011 and let the Convention be a platform for you to enrich others with your experiences.
