America’s Water: Innovation at Work
This year’s event, America’s Water: Innovation at Work, will focus on three prominent themes facing water in America today – Water Infrastructure, Financing Water Projects and the future of Water Utilities.
The America’s Water Initiative is a program that aims to build a network of academic institutions, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private industry to address America’s major water challenges and opportunities including climate risks, emerging technologies, urban water infrastructure, financial and legal instruments and the food/energy/water nexus. The America’s Water Event Series brings these leaders together to facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration and coordination.
We hope you will be able to join us!
