Making sustainable development goals possible
The 4th International Water Regulators Forum (IWRF) will be held this 14 of November 2017, alongside the IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The 4th IWRF is organized as an invite only meeting to host high level representatives of regulatory authorities and officials with regulatory and supervisory functions related to the provision of water, sanitation and wastewater management services.
The IWRF facilitates dialogue across regulatory functions – economic, health and environmental – and sectors to enable synergies, peer to peer learning and building new partnerships.
To date, the Forum has successfully gathered in Lisbon 2014 (Lisbon Charter), London 2015 and Brisbane 2016 –reaching to over 100 regulatory institutions from more than 80 jurisdictions in all continents, becoming a one of a kind global network of regulators hosted by IWA. Join the group on IWA Connect.
This year we will continue furthering dialogue and cooperation, addressing the key role of regulatory authorities achieving an enabling progress across SDGs. The Forum will be complemented by a series of activities throughout the congress, connecting regulators to other water champions.
