The Singapore International Water Week in 2012 is to be launched at the World Congress of the International Desalination Association (IDA) in Perth on 5 September 2011.

This year’s event, which concluded on 8 July, was perceived by many to be a resounding success, attracting some 13,500 participants from 99 countries.

To mark the start of the campaign for SIWW 2012, the organisers will be launching the post-event publications of the Water Week Blue Paper and Solutions at the IDA World Congress. The Blue Paper covers the key insights shared by global leaders at the Water Leaders Summit 2011 while Solutions recaps the memorable moments and activities at the Water Week.

Next year’s International Water Week will be on 2-6 July 2012.
