The 41st WEDC International Conference is to be co-hosted with Egerton University in Kenya from 9-13 July 2018. 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. Our 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. Please plan to join us, and help us to achieve our ambition to share and learn from our respective experiences, between both the local and international levels.
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.
