Asia Water Forum 2018

02 October 2018 to 05 October 2018
Manila
Philippines

Water demand will increase by 55% in 2050 and up to 3.4 billion people could be living in water-stressed areas of Asia by 2050. 

The Asia Water Forum 2018 discussed innovations that can ensure a water-secure Asia Pacific region and to keep water and sanitation high on the region’s development agenda. The event also contributed to the increased knowledge and application of international best practices and advanced technologies that can help avoid a looming water crisis in region.
