In 2013 the CIWEM Annual Conference will take a different direction with a new venue - The Royal Geographical Society - and a new approach to the speaker programme.
The conference programme will have one stream of offered and invited papers, plus inspiring keynote speakers, covering the practical reality of sustainably delivering water and environmental management.

We will be building on the successes of previous events to make this the must attend event for the water and environment sector.
