Organisers: TRUST project and IWA Cities of the Future Programme
The Cities of the Future – Transitions to the Urban Water Services of Tomorrow conference is an international conference jointly organized by the IWA Cities of the Future Programme and the European collaborative TRUST project.
The IWA Cities of the Future programme focuses on water security for the world’s cities and how the design of cities – and the water management, treatment and delivery systems that serve them – could be harmonised and re-engineered to minimise the use of scarce natural resources and increase the coverage of water and sanitation in lower and middle income countries.

The TRUST project (2011-2015) was aiming to support Urban Water Cycle Services in their transition to more sustainable modes of operation. To that purpose, TRUST has developed a range of diagnosis and analytical tools, methods for an improved strategic planning as well as management and operational solutions. These solutions have been co-produced with and demonstrated at a number of ambitious city utilities across Europe, and will also be presented in a dedicated session of the conference.
