Specialist groups are the core of IWA. Their members are engaged in many activities-organising conferences, seminars, workshops; or writing books, reports, newsletters and journal papers. Through task or working groups, they also produce scientific and technical reports, manuals of best practice or position papers.
The groups are an exceptionally effective means of international networking, sharing information and skills and making good professional and business contacts.

At the congress
Many specialist groups will have open meetings during the congress, which you are all welcome to attend. We will post details of the meetings on this page – so make sure to check this page regularly.
The ‘SG Island’-a dedicated space for specialist groups – will be located in the exhibition hall to display group materials and resources, and allow introductions and meetings with group leaders.
A reception will be hosted at 17.00-18.00 on Tuesday (in the vicinity of SG Island) on behalf of all the specialist groups and will feature the IWA Sustainability Specialist Group awards ceremony.
