The 2014 IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition
The 2014 IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition benefits from its host city, Lisbon. Portugal has continued evolving solutions to its historic and recent water challenges between the city’s aqueducts and canals at the mouth of the Tagus River and the international management of the five river basins it shares with Spain.
The city is an inexpensive favourite with travellers from the world over. Its vintage trams show you around the photogenic architecture of its palaces and aqueducts. Or get outdoors into the soft light by visiting the beaches around its harbour, walk the parks, or get active with surfing and dolphin-watching.
Lisbon is ready to host the best international ideas and the most dynamic global water professionals, who will be showcasing successful examples of enterprising regional systems, national policy initiatives, balancing private and public sectors, financial sustainability, and the regulation and benchmarking of water systems.
