WASH 2016 Conference announced
The WASH conference series, managed by the International WaterCentre with the support of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, have brought together WASH practitioners from all over the the world since 2006.
The conferences strengthen the capacity of WASH actors and facilitate the exchange of learning for improved effectiveness of policies and programs. They are attended by leading practitioners and professionals from governments, donors, civil society organisations and academia.
The week-long event will have two days dedicated to conference style sessions, tackling multiple issues of sustainability in WASH, and three days dedicated to training workshops on a range of WASH topics.
Previous conference themes have included:
- 2008: Meeting the sanitation and water challenge in Southeast-Asia and the Pacific
- 2011: Towards sustainability in water, sanitation and hygiene
- 2014: WASH for everyone, everywhere
