PROGRAM

2–5 October
Asian Development Bank
Manila, Philippines
WELCOME!
The Asian Development Bank welcomes you to the “Asia Water Forum (AWF) 2018 – Information, Innovation, and
Technology.”

AWF 2018 is ADB’s flagship knowledge sharing event on the water sector. Water is fundamental to sustaining Asia’s progress
and inclusive prosperity, and yet the region is facing serious challenges in managing supply and ensuring the efficient and
reliable delivery of water services. Tapping the trifecta of ‘information, innovation, and technology’ could be the game
changer that will help Asia and the Pacific improve its water security.

The goal of AWF 2018 is to bring together stakeholders from ADB developing member countries, private sector, research
institutions , academia, and civil society to share their knowledge and inspire the adoption of innovative practices, next-level
technologies, and better information systems. ADB also aims to keep the profile of water high on the region’s development
agenda.

In the newly launched Strategy 2030, ADB deepens its commitment to water, seeking to improve access to clean water
and sanitation services and to ensure the sustainable use of water resources. This forum is a venue to accelerate efforts
toward this commitment and Sustainable Development Goal 6, water and sanitation for all.

In the course of four exciting days, expect over 700 participants and a variety of high-level plenary and parallel technical
sessions covering 5 major activities under the One ADB Water Approach: (i) supplying water; (ii) sanitation and water
quality; (iii) water for food; (iv) water for energy; and (v) water resources management. There are also 5 hands-on workshops
and 48 exhibitors at the concurrent exhibition.

Enjoy and have a productive Asia Water Forum!

Asia Water Forum 2018
Information, Innovation, and Technology

The Asia Water Forum is the flagship knowledge sharing event of the Asian
Development Bank on the water sector. It is an inclusive and wide-ranging platform
that convenes stakeholders from governments of developing member countries,
private sector, development partners, research institutions, academia, civil society,
and the youth to discuss innovative solutions and best practices that would best
address the issues and challenges affecting the region’s water security. The forum is
also a venue to change mindsets and accelerate efforts toward the achievement of
Sustainable Development Goal 6, water and sanitation for all.

About the Asian Development Bank

ADB is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia


and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. Established
in 1966, it is owned by 67 members—48 from the region. Its main instruments
for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity
investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
