36th WEDC International Conference
During a 40-year history, 35 WEDC International Conferences have been jointly organized with partner institutions in Africa and Asia. Dedicated to the sharing of knowledge and the development of capacity in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) appropriate to local contexts and international good practice, the WEDC International Conference provides a valuable and respected platform for reflection, debate and exchange, rooted in practice. In 2013, we are delighted to be co-hosting the conference with Egerton University in Kenya.
Following an extensive strategic review and consultation with international stakeholders during 2012, the 36th WEDC conference will incorporate innovations designed to optimise the learning experience of the event both sharing knowledge and development of sector capacity. The conference sessions will run over the first three days, followed by optional sessions which include a careers compass event, for early career WASH professionals, and capacity development workshops on a range of hot topics, including field-based learning opportunities in and around Nakuru.
