The annual conference held jointly by the International Desalination Association and Global Water Intelligence is to be held next year in Paris on 26-27 April 2010.

Next year’s event is titled Global Water Summit 2010: Transforming the World of Water.

The conference will focus on practical solutions and provide a view of where money should be invested over the next decade. It will take an in-depth look at the water and energy nexus and hear from groundbreaking utilities about how they have transformed the way that they operate.

GWI’s Global Water Awards will take place on the evening of 26 April with the key note speech at the awards dinner coming from Queen Noor of Jordan, who will be telling the story of water in Jordan and linking it to wider issues in the Middle East and beyond. Queen Noor is well known as a humanitarian, activist and outspoken voice on issues of global peace-building, nuclear non-proliferation and cross-cultural understanding.
