We have a date: 29 – 30 May, 2024. We have a programmatic title: “Riding the wave: Water Sector Innovations for a new Climate Reality”. And we have found the perfect venue in beautiful Brasov in Romania. Please save the date and follow the link below to the event homepage for in-depth information.

Preparations are in full swing: The 2024 Danube Water Forum will convene on 29 – 30 May, 2024 in beautiful Brasov in Transylvania, back-to-back with a Board meeting of the International Water Association (IWA)  as well as the Utility Benchmarking Program Danube Hub workshop and a number of Business meetings.  

Themed “Riding the wave: Water Sector Innovations for a new Climate Reality,” the Forum will discuss the impact of a changing climate on the Danube region’s water sector, exploring recent developments, their effects on utilities, and sharing best practice examples for successful response strategies.

The Forum is organized by the Danube Water Program, and for the first time in cooperation with the new Utility of the Future – Center of Excellence initiative by the World Bank. 

Merited IAWD members Compania Apa Brasov and ARA, the Romanian Water Association, will be our hosts, promising excellent organization and warm hospitality in a city with rich history, amazing sights and beautiful surroundings that are well worth an extended trip if you can make time.

Just one widely popular example: Bran, the castle of legendary Vlad Dracul, the original Count Dracula, is situated a short 25 Kilometers from the conference venue.

The event homepage is now up and includes a Call for Submissions of outline papers for poster presentations. In-depth information on logistics and a comprehensive “How to register guide” will be provided by the end of February, when registration opens. 

Please stay tuned – and see you in Brasov!
