EmergPolut-HUB is a venue for water, health, and related discipline stakeholders to share knowledge and experiences and discuss topics related to emergent pollutants. It is also a space where they can promote upcoming opportunities and events.

Emerging Pollutants: Protecting Water Quality for the Health of People and the Environment Online Conference is organized by UNESCO and the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) on 17-19 January 2023 to highlight how the world can advance knowledge, research, and solutions for managing emerging pollutants to improve and protect water quality in a changing world. More details about the conference's specific objectives and details of its program can be found on its website.
