The Regional Utility Management Conference is organized by the Water Supply and Sewerage Association of Albania (SHUKALB) in partnership with the International Water Association (IWA).
The 1st Conference was organized in May 2013 in Tirana and following its success, a second Conference in May 2015, in Tirana was organized.
It is well understood that water supply and wastewater utilities around the world, and particularly in emerging economies, are not performing as they should, and as they must, if they are to meet the needs of growing populations in their service areas. This fact is not the result of any one specific issue, but stems from the complex reality that exists in the provision of these essential services in a unique environment of governance, public funding, and regulation.
The Conference gathers utility managers and senior utility staff, consultants, and management technology providers who debate and contribute to the future success of water supply and wastewater utilities.
