FUTURE OF WATER: 2017

ap__elect-trump-speech

Join NEWIN on January 12th for a panel discussion with leaders from water-investment, water-policy, water-technology and water-services as we discuss the Future of Water: 2017.

President-elect Donald Trump has outlined a twenty-eight point 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. He identifies it as a contract between himself and the American voter, reinforcing that that plan will restore honesty, accountability and change to the US political system. A full outline of the 100 day play can be read at this NPR source. Some of these points are directly related to the future of investment in water-innovation and water-infrastructure.

January 21st 2017, the Trump administration will begin actions to protect American workers and to introduce and drive passage of broader legislative measures. Two components of the twenty-eight point plan are directly and indirectly related to water:

1) Trumps plan intends to cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America's water and environmental infrastructure

2) Through the American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

On November 8th, the US Electoral College voted for this 100-day plan - join us as we discuss the details of what, who, how and when.
