The world is facing a water problem: groundwater basins are drying up, droughts are becoming more common, and growing populations are overloading outdated water systems. Addressing the challenges of a rapidly dwindling water supply in a world of growing demand will require groundbreaking water technology and sustained dialogue between all stakeholders.

Founded in 2016, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Business H2O Water Innovation Initiative is a flagship program that brings together business leaders, government stakeholders, and water management experts to showcase cutting-edge innovation in water management and shape public policies to address the growing demand for water across the world.

The International Forum, co-hosted by the US Chamber of Commerce and the World Bank, will convene multinational companies and foreign government officials, to accelerate ideas, partnerships, and collaboration around the adoption of new water technologies.

OBJECTIVES

  • Showcase leading water technologies that can have global impact
  • Share best practices for growing water technology ecosystems
  • Discuss barriers to deployment of water technologies and infrastructure projects around the world
