A milestone conference for Young Water Professionals

Efficient 2019 promises to be a memorable gathering for the youth in the water sector. Members of the Philippine Young Water Professionals (PYWP) will take on challenging roles as conference rapporteurs and facilitators of the Emerging Water Leaders Forum.

Conference rapporteurs are the designated reporters of the technical program. Rapporteurs capture highlights and key conclusions in concise session reports. The rapporteur team for Efficient 2019 is composed of Karmina Alejandro (PYWP Public Relations Director), Kath Faigal, and Rafael Madrigal.

Efficient 2019 also features the first Emerging Water Leaders Forum to be held in Manila. Moderated by PYWP Co-Chair Kris Catangcatang, the Forum is a unique opportunity for YWPs to learn from senior professionals and from one other. Participants will hear from two special guest speakers: IWA’s Specialist Groups Officer Lisa Andrews, and Young Environment Forum executive director Ludwig Federigan.

“Efficient 2019 will uphold the IWA’s commitment to develop the next generation of water and environment leaders,” reflects Conference President Yang Villa, who sits as PYWP Co-Chair alongside Catangcatang. “As we say in PYWP: When the future of water is in your hands, you act decisively to make every drop count.”
