IWI attends the 11th AWC Board of Council Meeting

The 11th AWC Board of Council Meeting was held on 8 July 2020 via Zoom Meeting. In this agenda, the Board members had intensive discussions on the availability of hosting the 2nd AIWW in Indonesia, as originally planned (14-18 October 2020), while monitoring the pandemic condition of COVID-19 around the world. AWC Board Members recommended to move the date of 2nd AIWW 2020 to a later date. This was considering the health and safety of potential participants, restriction on travel and border closures, and the contagion of virus. Therefore, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (MPWH) and AWC Secretariat (as the co-hosts) decided to reschedule the date of 2nd AIWW which will be announced in September 2020 (through internal meetings). The main programs of the 2nd AIWW are being prepared, which are Asia Water Issue (24 thematic sessions), Asia to World Statement, and Water Project Business Forum, Special Sessions, and Exhibition. The MPWH and AWC will continue to monitor the pandemic condition and rescheduling other global water events in 2021.
