Participate in the 41st WEDC International Conference, with the theme of ‘Transformation towards sustainable and resilient WASH services’, to be co-hosted with Egerton University in Kenya. The conference is a valued and respected platform for reflection, debate and exchange of knowledge and ideas that are rooted in practice.
The conference title relates to that of the concurrent high level political forum (HLPF) which is a central mechanism to follow up and review the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In 2018 the HLPF will consider SDG 6 ‘Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all’ in detail. The conference title also captures and conveys the essence of key local and regional issues in East Africa, which are further outlined in some topics of interest.
The week incorporates three days of presentation and discussion of peer reviewed content, and two days of tailored capacity development workshops. The programme structure incorporates a variety of innovative formats for effective networking and collective learning. Typically attracting more than 400 participants from research, practice and policy communities across more than 40 countries, this is truly a unique international event.
