A by-invitation gathering of global water leaders and experts, the Water Leaders Summit (WLS) aims to shape the global water agenda, by providing insights into business, innovation and policy intervention to tackle the world’s pressing urban water challenges. WLS at SIWW2022 convenes global water leaders for strategic discussions on key thematic areas including climate resilience, resource circularity, and sustainability to spur collective action. Delegates can also expect to interact with fellow leaders at the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore, which is held alongside SIWW2022.
