About www.siwwdiary.com - now, Singapore Water Dialogue
We have been running a successful and engaging blog covering water issues and conversations heard at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) since 2009.
In 2012, we decided to make this platform more permanent, more engaging and more relevant. With that in mind, we rebranded this site Singapore Water Dialogue, and have moved it to sit under Black & Veatch’s Water Dialogue website.
Singapore Water Dialogue will continue to cover events around SIWW but also serve as a platform whereby we can air and discuss issues relating to water that are relevant to people in Singapore, and, quite frankly, anyone else interested in learning more about the complexities of the water industry.
Black & Veatch will also continue its partnership with http://siww.com.sg/youth/ and serve as a platform for Singapore’s youths and next generation of opinion leaders to learn and share their experiences and insights on water issues in Singapore and beyond. We have had successful partnerships in previous years with media students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Singapore Polytechnic where we have published hundreds of their blog posts and hope to continue on this path through Singapore Water Dialogue.
Our blog is your blog – so join in the conversation by contributing and sending ideas and commenting on what the community is discussing.

www.SIWWDIARY.com was the first dedicated live blog from a major water/wastewater conference. From its launch in 2009, the goal of this conference blog has been to build a community of people interested in sharing and exchanging their insights, experiences and ideas in an active dialogue. We continue to remain true to this objective. Please browse the archives.
