Joining forces for a better water future

The International Water Association (IWA) and the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewage Association (VWSA) have joined forces to advance the future of water professionals in Vietnam and to exchange knowledge and technological insights internationally. This partnership also sees VWSA as the hosting organisation for IWA’s Governing Member in Vietnam.

Governing Members are at the heart of IWA’s efforts to progress its vision of a water wise world. They represent IWA at national and regional levels, and convene people locally to share best practice and explore opportunities for innovative water solutions.

IWA and VWSA will be working together to strengthen synergies, tackling the specific needs of Vietnam and Southeast Asia, as well nurturing the professional development of water professionals in the country for a better water future.

Through this partnership, Vietnam’s water professionals and their skills will be enhanced thanks to connection with IWA’s extensive global network and rich professional development programme. Within IWA, Vietnamese water professionals will be able to connect with global peers, showcase their expertise, and develop leadership skills. IWA’s professional development and leadership programme includes events, programmes, access to industry publications, young water professionals as well as specialist groups that covers the full water cycle.

VWSA has an important position in the field of water, technical infrastructure and environment protection in Vietnam. The MoU with IWA is an important activity for the VWSA, giving opportunity for the Vietnam water industry to integrate with the global water network. 

With the mission of connecting water industry experts around the world with advanced and sustainable approaches, the IWA will support and lead countries to develop together and solve the problems and challenges of the water sector together. 

Being member of IWA, the countries can learn from each other via IWA platforms, find most effective implementation and management of sustainable water, avoid failures from lessons of others
