The international water and sanitation community will be gathering from March 21-26 in Dakar, Senegal, for the World Water Forum. This is the world’s largest water industry event, organized by the World Water Council. It has been held every three years since 1997 in partnership with a host country and this year, for the first time, it is scheduled to take place in sub-Saharan Africa. This event brings together participants from institutional, political, academic, civil and private-sector fields, and provides a unique platform for the international water community and key decision-makers to work together and make long-term progress on global water challenges.
Idrica and its local partner, Quantum Solutions, will be playing an active role in the 9th World Water Forum with a booth, under the umbrella of the ICEX Spain Pavilion, which aims to bring together companies, institutions and experts from the industry. Moreover, Idrica’s Business Development Director, Chema Nebot, will be speaking at the round table on March 23, entitled “The role of local information systems in water management and planning”. The session has been organized by United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) in conjunction with other entities, such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Water Council and the World Bank.
Idrica brings its international experience in the digital transformation of the entire water cycle to the event, together with its unique value proposition, based on the efficiency and quality of its services and the GoAigua smart technology solution. In addition, the international firm, Quantum Solutions, which does business in Senegal, will be providing its know-how in deploying turnkey infrastructure projects for the public sector with optimal results.
The 9th World Water Forum is of particular importance as it aims to drive and accelerate universal access to water and sanitation, in line with global agendas and commitments related to the Sustainable Development Goals, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement and Africa’s Agenda 2063.
