Informa – Australia’s leading business conference organiser – is delighted to be hosting the forthcoming Water Security Summit on the 26th-27th October at the Radisson Blu Sydney. The event will investigate ways to secure Australia’s future water supplies against drought.

Water supplies across Australia are facing increasing strain, with the Bureau of Australia declaring Spring 2019 to be the driest season in 120 years and the Climate Council’s finding that Australia is experiencing more intense periods of droughts and diminishing rainfall patterns. It now vital that we explore new ways of managing our water supply to ensure long-term water security for our future.

Topics will include:

  • Government initiatives
  • The future of desalination
  • Water recycling
  • Urban and rural water security
  • Water pricing
