IWA 20th International Conference on Diffuse Pollution & Eutrophication (IWA DIPCON 2023)

Community Organizer:


Sustainable development and environmental protection, preservation, and restoration remains a great challenge in various countries all over the world. This situation is aggravated by climate change and difficulties associated with the management of diffuse pollution. This conference aims to promote effective environmental management by creating a platform for knowledge-sharing and information dissemination. The conference will address environmental problems in relation to diffuse pollution from agricultural, urban, industrial, and other critical areas of concern. Aside from diffuse pollution, this conference will also tackle issues related to emerging pollutants, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and advanced technologies for diffuse pollution management. Ultimately, this conference can serve as a venue for gathering experts from different parts of the world to share their knowledge and expertise on environmental engineering, policy development, and sustainable environmental management approaches.

The 20th International Conference on Diffuse Pollution & Eutrophication (DIPCON 2023) is particularly interested in knowing the current trends of research concerning diffuse pollution management in different countries. Through this conference can introduce breakthrough technologies and innovations for managing diffuse pollution to the global audience. Since environmental issues are inevitably related to socio-economic and policy issues, DIPCON 2023 will also provide special emphasis on the collaboration between policy-makers and environmental experts to foster a meaningful discussion directed towards sustainable environmental management approaches. The role of nature-based solutions (NbS), the nexus approach, environmental policy development, and circular economy will also be highlighted in the conference to form a multi-disciplinary program that promotes inclusivity and diversity. Overall, DIPCON 2023 will provide an opportunity for researchers and scientists, practitioners, non-government organizations, and policy-makers to discuss important issues within the scope of the conference topics.
