Experts at an international water and energy conference in Copenhagen this week hope to pool their resources and hone their message for the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference.
The three-day water and energy conference is being hosted by the International Water Association (IWA) and ends today. The London-based non-profit organization brings together global water professionals to develop effective and sustainable approaches of water management.
Conference objectives include sharing information on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption in the water sector, reducing pressure on water resources from the energy sector, and exploring potential areas of cooperation between the two sectors.
Conference organizers aim to strengthen and further develop professional relations between the two sectors. They also hope to define and refine messages from the water utility sector for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December.
The Copenhagen conference has been organized by the Danish National Committee for International Water Association in cooperation with IWA’s Specialist Group on Climate Change.
