 INVITATION TO SPONSORS
The International Water Association (IWA), Hungarian Water Utility Association (HWUA) and the BME
Department of Sanitary ad Environmental Engineering cordially invite you to Sponsor the 6Th IWA Young
Water Professionals Conference 2012 in Budapest Hungary. In making a commitment to become a sponsor,
your company will be assured high profile and exposure at this conference.

Please take a few moments to read through the following proposal. If you require further information
about sponsoring, please contact Frances Lucraft, IWA Programme Coordinator on +44 (0) 207 654 5521 or
email: frances.lucraft@iwahq.org

     1. PREAMBLE
The water and wastewater sector face a recruitment challenge. There is an ageing workforce, whose skills
and expertise need to be handed on to a new generation. At the same time, the sector needs to attract the
brightest talent from an ever-widening range of disciplines. This talent is needed to deliver solutions to the
issues faced in the sector and to respond to the business opportunities these present.

The International Water Association (IWA) has recognised this challenge for some years ago and its
response was the creation of the IWA Young Water Professionals (YWP) Programme, which provides a
range of career development activities, services and initiatives to young professionals and students in the
water and wastewater sector of 35 and under.

The 6th IWA International YWP conference in Budapest, Hungary will follow the tradition of a series of
successful International YWP conferences. Hungary as a new EU member state experienced a wave of
investments in water industry during the past few years increasing the coverage of sewerage and
communal wastewater treatment from 50% to 75% in a brief period. Solving the problems of ammonium
and arsenic will provide safe and healthy drinking water for approximately 2 million people.

However, some regions face long term strategic problems, such as the decrease of drinking water
resources, their protection, limited surface water availability that leads to increasing water prices, global
hydro-climate changes, arsenic and ammonium contamination. This conference will provide an excellent
opportunity for participants to get information about the latest research of YWPs and network with them;
so I invite you to participate the conference.

     2. BACKGROUND TO THE INTERNATIONAL WATER ASSOCIATION (IWA)
The International Water Association (IWA) is the global network of 10,000 water professionals spanning the
continuum between research and practice covering all facets of the water cycle. It is therefore in a better
position than any other organization in the world to help water professionals create innovative, pragmatic
and sustainable solutions to challenging global water needs. IWA is at the forefront in connecting the broad
community of water professionals around the globe - integrating the leading edge of professional thought
on research and practice, regulators and the regulated, across national boundaries and across the drinking
water, wastewater and storm water disciplines.
Through membership in IWA, water professionals from many specialties benefit from the synergistic gains
that result from collaboration across the boundaries of specialties, professions and different parts of the
world. Through its network of experts in research, practice, regulation, consulting and manufacturing, IWA
can address the unique expressions of global challenges in communities throughout the world to create
expanded knowledge and integrated, sustainable solutions. Each year IWA organizes and sponsors many
specialized conferences and seminars on a wide variety of topics in water management in locations
worldwide to include: IWA World Water Congress, Annual Leading-edge conferences, specialty conferences
and regional conferences.
                                                      3
        3. ABOUT THE IWA YOUNG WATER PROFESSIONAL (YWP) PROGRAMME
The focus of the IWA Young Water Professionals (YWP) Programme is specific to career development of
YWPs and/or students entering the water sector. This central focus provides the impetus for all events,
campaigns, and activities at all levels, from the global to the local. As such, the YWP Programme provides a
range of career development activities, services and initiatives to young professionals and students in the
water and wastewater sector of 35 and under. As well as engaging with YWPs, the YWP Programme also
connects with employers, academic institutions and other professional associations to ensure that the
future needs of the sector are understood and addressed. The activities and initiatives of the Programme
should demonstrate the value of IWA membership to YWPs and encourage more YWPs to join the
Association.

The overarching objectives to:
     Attract young people to the water sector by providing tools to help young professionals to develop
        their career and grow professionally;
     Increase the visibility, credibility and membership of young water professionals within the IWA and
        the water sector at large;
     Strengthening the mechanisms and activities for YWP to get engaged in water;
     Develop and support YWP to become future leaders of the water sector (and the association)
        through the collaboration and contribution to current debates and thinking in water-related
        issues.
