IWRA attended the Budapest Water Summit held from the 8 - 11th October in Hungary's vibrant capital. Amongst various other activities our President Prof. Dogan Altinbilek was involved in a high-level panel discussion on "What is this green stuff?" which looked at the opportunities for using traditional and innovative water technologies in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication. Tom Soo, our ED, moderated this panel discussion and a number of our members were also active across the four days.

Interested in what else was discussed at the Summit? Outcomes are outlined in the Budapest Water Summit Statement.
