PREPARED conference: Adaptive solutions for water utilities
Demonstrating practical approaches to climate change in the urban area

PREPARED and Aarhus Water are pleased to announce that a conference on adaptive solutions for water utilities will be held in Aarhus, Denmark, January 21-23, 2014.

The conference is a three day technical event for water utilities, city authorities, researchers and consultants with an interest in how water utilities are working with practical solutions in order to adapt to climate change on a short, middle and long term time scale.

PREPARED partners - including 14 water utilities - and invited speakers are presenting their latest research and experiences. Conference tracks are focusing on solutions for operation and planning of wastewater and drinking water systems, Water Cycle Safety Plans, handling of Climate Change Scenarios and other key areas within PREPARED.

The third day of the conference is including the Cities Alliance Forum where water utilities are sharing their experience in solution specific sessions, which will evaluate the solution applied in utilities within and outside PREPARED.

During the 3 days, solutions are presented on posters and videos and the teams – utilities, research partners and technology providers - are available for in depth discussions.

More information on the conference including the programme and online registration can be found here: www.aarhusvand.dk/conference
