WEDC International Conference 2016
 

11-15 July 2016 | Kumasi, Ghana

 

Ensuring Availability and Sustainable Management of Water and Sanitation for All

The WEDC ( Water, Engineering and Development Centre ) International Conference is a comprehensive and interactive learning event, which provides continued professional development for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector professionals. Watch the video below for a brief overview.

The conference is a valued and respected platform for reflection, debate and exchange of knowledge and ideas which are rooted in practice. Our programme includes three days of presentations and discussion of peer-reviewed content. This is alongside two days of focused capacity development workshops designed to develop skills and knowledge in topical areas, which have been jointly identified and developed with sector stakeholders.

In 2016 we consider our respective contributions to the achievement of the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We invite partners, and those conducting significant or innovative programmes and projects with interesting experiences, to share those with us. A variety of formats during our event help to facilitate this and our collective learning, including discussion of peer reviewed papers, poster or espresso slot presentations, side events, or capacity development workshops.

Topics

We particularly welcome submissions which will contribute to the following specific thematic discussions:

  • Leadership in WASH

  • How to mainstream equity and inclusion within institutions

  • WASH services in the transition from emergency to development

  • Disaster risk management – implications for WASH

  • Transformative technologies in WASH

  • How to instigate menstrual hygiene management

  • How to instigate and sustain hygiene behaviour change

  • How to link WASH, nutrition and health

  • How to measure sustainability of WASH Services

  • Faecal Sludge Management
