The International Desalination Association’s (IDA)World Congress 2021 will take place from 7–11 November 2021 in Sydney, Australia, a decade on from its 2011 World Congress in Perth.
The 2021 IDA World Congress and exhibition will provide knowledge-sharing and interaction opportunities for participants on both technical and business topics, related to the use of desalination and water reuse solutions to ensure a secure water future. The centrepiece of the Congress is its Technical Programme covering all aspects of desalination and water reuse as solutions to ensure the sustainability of the world's water resources. With more than 300 papers among ten technical topics and multiple sub-topics, the Technical Programme will explore a broad range of desalination and water reuse technologies, practices, and experiences worldwide. The knowledge-sharing aspect of the programme recognises that resources and requirements can vary based on location, climate conditions, and natural resources. Shannon McCarthy, IDA Secretary General, said: “IDA is looking forward to working with the entire Australian desalination and water reuse stakeholder community to develop the World Congress and welcome participants to Sydney.”
