DSBP is delighted to see IWA-ASPIRE shares the same ideas as the PIB – Urban Challenges, Integrated Sustainable Solution (PIB), and we believe that the meeting with PIB and other conference members would definitely sparkle, bridging knowledge and create business opportunities. On behalf of the PIB, DSBP has written an abstract introducing the current environmental and water usage challenges in China, the expertise of the PIB and the cases the PIB has been working on. These cases include:
