IWA Awards

Inspiring Change through Innovation & Leadership

IWA is committed to recognising the special contributions and achievements of its members and water sector professionals, and the invaluable contribution they make to key innovations in water science and management. 

The IWA Awards recognise the broad range of excellence, leadership and innovation, which IWA members and network participants bring to both our Association, and the industry at large, and exist to encourage the continued role of innovation in contributing to the sustainable management of water. As such they are an important element of IWAs theory of change articulated in our Strategic Plan.

IWA Awards aim to become a vehicle through which IWA encourages and rewards innovation and sets international benchmarks for innovative thinking, and application of solutions for wise water management and practice.
