7th Rural Water Supply Network Forum

7th Rural Water Supply Network Forum

29th November – 2nd December, 2016. The RWSN Forum is the foremost global event on rural water services and takes place every 5 years. We anticipate 650 participants from all over the world at the 2016 event which is in English and French.

Globally, use of improved drinking water services in rural areas rose from 62% to 84% from 1990 to 2015. Investment in rural water works, but there is still need to:

  1. Achieving universal access – water for everyone
  2. Ensure that services improve over time
  3. Bring about sustainable services
  4. Link water supply with water resources management

The 7th RWSN Forum will explore how we are going to reach Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in rural areas and small towns? What has worked well in the past? What needs to be done differently in the future?  Come and share your experiences of success and failure and learn from others.
