EWA Spring Days – Budapest Water Conference


Between 4 and 6 March 2015 Budapest will become the capital of the global water community again.

In the framework of the European Water Association’s (EWA) Spring Confer­ence series the Hungarian Water Association (MaSzeSz), under the patron­age of HE János Áder, president of Hungary and in collaboration with the Bu­dapest Waterworks, will organize the joint 2015 EWA Spring Days – Budapest Water Conference and field trip.

The joint conference is designed to serve as an open and dynamic platform that enables participants to gain knowledge – through tried-and-tested solu­tions and practical examples presented by professionals from all around the world – on how experts handle challenges under similar or different circum­stances.

The three day event will provide a timely opportunity for public and private sector decision-makers, water utility professionals, experts and other stake­holders from the developed and the developing world to exchange views and share experiences with leading international experts on the most pressing challenges and potential solutions in the field urban water management.

During the entire programme a water industry expo will be open at the venue of the conference.

Draft Program

The opening day of the conference (4 March, Wednesday) will first discuss, in plenary format, the most important global and regional urban water man­agement issues in light of the recommendations of the 2014 Budapest Water Summit and the UN sustainable development goal on water.

The second day of the conference (5 March, Thursday) will comprise three rounds of parallel panel sessions dedicated to the topical planning, technological and social challenges of urban water management, such as water securi­ty/security of service, integrated urban water resources management, educa­tion and training or stakeholder engagement.

On the final day (6 March, Friday), participants will be invited to visit some key water infrastructure sites in Budapest.
