Asia’s only specialized trade event for the water loss management industry. Exhibition, Workshop and Conference will keep you updated with latest developments in NRW.
Non-revenue water, or “NRW”–defined as the difference between the amount of water put into the distribution system and the amount of water billed to consumers—remains a challenge for many communities today, especially in developing countries, where about 45 million cubic meters are lost daily through water leakage in the distribution networks—enough to serve nearly 200 million people (World Bank). In Asia, it is estimated that the annual volume of NRW in urban water utilities is around 29 billion cubic meters (m3), causing water utilities to lose nearly $9 billion per year (Asian Development Bank). In Indonesia, rapid urbanization has outpaced investment in the water services sector, emphasizing the need for efficient NRW management in this populous nation.
Water Loss Asia 2016, now in its 5th edition, returns as the authoritative platform for water professionals to discuss the issue of water loss management, a pertinent global challenge that demands solutions for today and planning for tomorrow. Themed “Managing NRW the Asian Way and Enabling Indonesian Water Utilities” this 3-day international industry event will host a workshop, conference and exhibition estimated to draw over 3,000 visitors from the water sector seeking new solutions for NRW Management and opportunities to network, share and collaborate. For the first time ever, Water Loss Asia 2016 will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, the cosmopolitan capital of one of the region’s most populous nations.
The event is jointly organized by Indonesia Water Supply Association (PERPAMSI) and PROTEMP Group and supported by the Water Loss Asia Industry Group. PERPAMSI is the official body for water utilities in Indonesia, and to date has 425 members, of which 383 are Regional Water Companies (PDAM) offices.
