Dear AWP Friend,
Join us in participating in the most extensive water exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere - OzWater'22.
The Australian Water Partnership is proudly supporting the Australian Water Association (AWA) to deliver a comprehensive and inspiring three-day conference program under the theme Our Water Journey. Our Water Journey celebrates the evolution of the water sector from its rich history, where we are now and what possibilities lie in our future.
The Australian Water Partnership is collaborating with the WaterAid, the International WaterCentreWater, Yarra Valley Water, and AWA's international team to highlight the importance of development work done by Australia in partnerships with neighbours across the Asia- Pacific region.
We welcome you to visit the AWP stand (L23) and meet some of our team, and we invite you to participate in these sessions.
