The 2015 International Water & Climate Forum will take the discussion about adaptation and mitigation in the water sector to the next level by focusing on what utilities are doing on the ground in their communities to implement climate adaptation and mitigating strategies. This unique event will mobilize attendees to be visionary thinkers and to expand their knowledge base with the ultimate goal of promoting long-term sustainability and fostering water supply and ecosystem resilience.

Specifically focusing on climate adaptation and mitigation strategies for water utilities, this invitation-only gathering will detail lessons learned from the front line, advance proven best practices and stimulate thinking about future solutions.

Forum speakers will be utility managers, climate change planners and scientists, policy makers and practitioners from around the globe.

Through presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions, attendees will leave the Forum better prepared to tackle the challenges of improving water sustainability and resilience in the urban environment.
