Future water management

2023 a varied program in presence and online

The Association for Wastewater Technology (ATV) was founded in May 1948. 75 years later, we are celebrating this anniversary as the now German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste (DWA). We are looking less backwards than forwards, and so this year‘s DWA Dialogue Berlin is themed „Future Water Management“.

The international forum is dedicated to the Strategic Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and is entitled „Sustainability and Water: Halfway to Achieving the SDGs“. The IWA, the EWA, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Global Water Operators‘ Partnerships Alliance (GWOPA) and the United Nations University (UNU) are involved.
