About the Event
In 2020, ABES – The Brazilian Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering will hold in Brazil, for the second time (the first edition entitled Rio Water Week took place in Rio de Janeiro, in 2018), the most important event on water in the world: BRAZIL WATER WEEK (BWW), from 26th to 30th of October.
