WWCF 2019 Previous Outcome

Water experts and local government representatives from five organizations from 12 cities in 10 countries, including the United States, France, the Netherlands, China and Taiwan, shared their current policies and future strategies in water and environmental industries in each country and city, and provided knowledge by presenting practical and useful case studies.

Daegu metropolitan city, Mongpellier, Ditech Institute and Aqua Valley`s four-way MOUs have been established to further strengthen the water industry cooperation network.

Under the theme of 'Building Sustainable Water City Partnership', we have prepared a useful venue for sharing water resource policies of cities around the world through a presentation session under the theme of 'Water Security and Water Welfare', including a round table meeting where representatives from each city discussed in depth the direction of water-related policies and future development measures.

By preparing an action plan for establishing a water city partnership, we have prepared a stage to strive, implement, and set up new challenges for the ongoing forum.
