Description

We invite government officials, water utilities, technology solutions providers, vendors, knowledge partners, institutions, and development professionals seeking smart and innovative water solutions to join us on 18-22 and 25-27 October 2021 as we open the 2nd Asian Development Bank e-Marketplace for Water-Secure and Resilient Asia and the Pacific.

The e-Marketplace will gather stakeholders from ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs) to discuss the latest digital technology and best practices to deliver smart, resilient, safe, and inclusive water management and services.

Earlier this year, ADB launched the 1st e-Marketplace on 15 March 2021 which focused on rural and bulk water services delivery. Fifty-eight organizations shared their technological solutions with 2,154 participants from the public and private sector who were involved in water and sanitation. 

This event is an opportunity to meet new partners who can radically change the way organizations manage their water resources. 

Objectives

The event aims to raise participants’ awareness on innovative products, services, and tools for smart water management and promote the uptake of technology for water among DMCs. The e-Marketplaces will also present selected innovative projects, tools, and publications developed and supported by ADB and its partners.
