EVENTS Health & Environment INDUSTRY


The International Water Associations (IWA) in collaboration with the Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) and the South African Young Water Professionals are hosting the 8th International Young Water Professionals Conference in Cape Town, South Africa from 10th –13th December 2017. The IYWPC brings together 400 water, environment and other related young professionals from approximately 50 countries worldwide with the priority mandate to provide capacity building and skills development opportunities to young professionals (those under 35 years old) within the water sector.

Why must you attend this conference?

This year’s conference which is based on the theme ‘Building Leaders & Making an Impact’ makes it obvious that the conference is geared towards preparing young professionals to secure the future of water accessibility throughout the world. One’s participation in this conference will yield several benefits through the following ways:

  • The workshops, exhibitions and presentations will equip young water professionals to be able to introduce new innovations and techniques into the water industry.
  • The networking opportunities are an avenue for collaborating with other professionals and institutions in sharing resources that can improve young water professionals’ performance in their respective fields.
  • The training sessions will serve as a platform for acquiring some professional skills, which can impact the development process of young water professionals

In the four days, young water professionals will be able to:

  • Hear from expert keynote speakers from across the world.
  • Update their knowledge through technical sessions.
  • Discuss and collaborate with young water professionals all over the world during workshops.
  • Benefit from networking opportunities with a diverse range of water professionals
  • Gain insight into career developments.

This conference provides significant value for money. Based on the above, I would like to encourage all young water professionals and interested individuals and organizations to attend this very important conference. Visit for more information and registration. See you there!
