THE INTERNATIONAL WATER ASSOCIATION
The severe water challenges that the world faces today require a united global response. With representatives from more than 130 countries worldwide, the International Water Association (IWA) forms the largest international network of water professionals working towards a world that is water wise. They focus on a wide range of areas that contribute to effective water management across the world. The innovative and service-oriented solutions to various challenges will be rigorously debated amongst the members and then fomented. The International Water Association is an open, yet ordered platform on which both innovators and adopters of new technologies and approaches can generate creative friction. It is definitely a place for the diffusion of thoughts and an evidence of success establishing benchmarks of their own.
FICCI, established in 1927, is the largest and oldest apex business organisation in India. Its history is closely interwoven with India's struggle for independence, its industrialization, and its emergence as one of the most rapidly growing global economies. A non-government, not-for-profit organisation, FICCI is the voice of India's business and industry. From influencing policy to encouraging debate, engaging with policy makers and civil society, FICCI articulates the views and concerns of industries. It serves its members from the Indian private and public corporate sectors and multinational companies, drawing its strength from diverse regional chambers of commerce and industry across states, reaching out to over 2,50,000 companies. It is headquartered in the national capital New Delhi and has presence in 12 states in India and 8 countries across the world. FICCI’s vision is to be the thought leader for industry, its voice for policy change and its guardian for effective implementation. The Federation’s stand on policy issues is actively sought by the government and FICCI is the first port of call for Indian industry and the international business community when policy change is sought.
