Whether it’s mitigating the impacts of rising sea levels or ensuring every citizen has access to a clean, safe supply, water management is integral to the survival of our society. This is especially true in the Asia Pacific region, where an abundance of coastal communities means the lives and livelihoods of billions of people are at stake.

Our water sector expertise, unique technologies, and products (such as Nereda® and Ephyra®) are helping to protect coastal communities, build flood resilience, and bring new efficiency to water treatment centres. And we’re always looking to develop our offering and collaborate with like-minded parties.

This year, our experts will be at Singapore International Water Week, a global platform where people can come together to share their knowledge and co-create innovative water, coastal, and flood solutions.

Join us on 18-22 June at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. The details of our talks are below.
