About the Event
During the Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW 2021) global leaders and experts from cities, industries, utilities and agri-food with (applied) scientists will come together to meet, mix and match around the AIWW main theme 2021: Blue green deals with integrated solutions. AIWW 2021 theme is aligned with global blue-green deals like European Union’s Green Deal programme, Green New Deal (GND), US environmental resolution, EU-China Summit 2020 resolutions on de-carbonization and green recovery, World Bank Green Bond programme and Blue economy programme. The main theme provides a push to accelerate the achievement of UN-SDG Global Agenda 2030 goals.
