The latest IWA videos

Reduce, reuse and replenish are the cornerstones of IWA’s water-wise world. By taking the right steps, we will move from a linear inefficient practice towards a cyclical and restorative process. IWA members and partners worldwide are the actors of this process. Watch and listen to them and their stories. View the entire IWA video collection.

If you would like to support the IWA video story work please get in touch with us. We have different solutions to bring your message to the top leading water professionals worldwide.

Cities of the Future

Water sensitive cities are great places to live, where innovation, social cohesion, creativity and culture flourish. To create sustainable water in cities, all stakeholders need to act to avoid the looming water crisis. The Cities of the Future agenda harnesses the power of the IWA network to co-create solutions and join efforts to manage a city’s many waters in a sustainable and resilient manner, an approach endorsed by the IWA Principles for Water Wise Cities.
