July 7, 2011
The event was part of the Water Leaders Summit at this week’s Singapore Intl. Water Week

For the fourth consecutive year, the Intl. Desalination Assn. (IDA) supported the Water Leaders Summit at Singapore Intl. Water Week. This invitation-only annual meeting, which took place July 5-6, brings together ministers, mayors, senior government officials, global water industry leaders, heads of international organizations, leading researchers and practitioners to consider pressing water governance, technology and business issues that impact communities worldwide.

IDA was one of the driving forces behind creation of the summit and has continued to support it each year as a Strategic Partner. This year, IDA co-organized the Water Leaders Roundtable on “Water in the Changing Urban Environment: The Water-Energy Nexus Challenge.”

This session looked into key challenges as well as opportunities in the integrated management of water and energy resources. Leon Awerbuch, former president and director of IDA, chaired the session.
