WASH Futures 2018 Conference, hosted in Brisbane, Australia 5 - 9 March, will explore the core theme of Collaboration for Universal WASH. Hosted by the International WaterCentre in partnership with the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the conference will gather a wide range of practitioners and professionals from industry and private sectors, governments and academic institutions to contribute to the broader international WASH dialogue and share knowledge with the Australian WASH community and partners.

The five day program comprises a two day conference and three days of training workshops, and will focus primarily, but not exclusively, on the following topics:

  1. Financing and investing to achieve universal and sustainable WASH systems
  2. Collaborative and effective WASH enabling environments
  3. Equitable WASH
  4. Women and sustainable WASH
  5. Sustainable WASH for rural populations
  6. Urban water and sanitation systems
  7. WASH service delivery beyond households
  8. Hygiene for personal health and wellbeing
  9. Integrating WASH with water security and other sectors
  10. Achieving SDG6 in Pacific Island Countries

WASH 2018 Abstract submission

Abstracts are invited from interested individuals or groups, on the conference topics, or other relevant topics. Collaborations between organisations are encouraged, as are teams of trainers/workshop presenters, to enable a diversity of experiences from conceptual/academic to practice.
A conference program of oral presentations, with specific thematic sessions and streams, will be developed based upon the abstracts accepted. Submitted abstracts must align with one or more of the above topics (abstracts may align with more than one numbered topic, and do not necessarily need to align with a specific dot point listed under each topic online).
The Conference Committee will also review abstracts and work in partnership with selected training/workshop teams to ensure the training program delivers high quality opportunities for building the capacity of delegates.
