IWA Recognition Awards

With recognition being one of the cornerstones of our new network model, IWA Awards are an important pillar of the network.

IWA’s Recognition Awards Programme recognises and acknowledges the achievements of IWA’s members who make significant contributions both to the IWA and to water management worldwide. 

The IWA Outstanding Service Award and the IWA Publishing Award are awarded through a peer-to-peer committee. With recognition being one of the cornerstones of the IWA network model, these Awards are an important pillar of the network. IWA’s Recognition Awards Programme acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of IWA’s members who make significant contributions both to the IWA and to water management worldwide. They are presented every two years at the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition.
