We are pleased to welcome you to the 4th IWA Regional Conference on Diffuse Pollution & Eutrophication (DIPCON) to be held in Istanbul, Turkey from October 24-28, 2022. From widespread pesticide use to heavy metal emissions from vehicular transport to microplastic release into the environment, diffuse pollution has become a major threat to air, soil and water bodies. Widespread eutrophication of numerous water bodies across all continents and their impacts on living organisms and human health are a stark manifestation of the challenges we face. Anticipated climate change is likely to exacerbate the risk to the water resources of numerous regions of the world. Addressing these challenges requires a concerted holistic approach by stakeholders including scientists, engineers, hydrologists, policy makers, NGO, water regulators, and awareness and participation on the part of the general public. The purpose of this conference is to bring together these various perspectives thereby contributing to the scientific debate towards alleviating these adverse environmental effects. It is evident that societies need to resort to natural based solutions that balance the need for economical growth and food security with ecological protection. The city of Istanbul, a welcoming vibrant megacity with a magnificent history and natural beauty, is the ideal place to host this meeting. Joining two continents with shores on three different seas, the city is easily accessible from various regions of the world. The assembled organizing and programme committees will do their utmost to facilitate the scientific discussions. We look forward to meeting you all in October.
