IWRA 50th Anniversary High Level Panel

“A Conversation on Water: Assessing the State of Knowledge and Achievement”

25 March

Throughout 2021, IWRA will be celebrating its 50th anniversary!  Established on November 29th, 1971, in the United States, this year marks a major landmark in the history of the Association, and we want to celebrate it with our members, partners and the entire international water community.

The Association, therefore, invited to participate in this 90-minute high level panel that took place on March 25th, 2021. It featured the most eminent water professionals to reflect on the local-to-global water sector over the past half-century, and to discuss where the sector might go, or needs to go, in the next 50 years.  IWRA’s historical impact and future role in the sector was also be assessed.
