The WEDC 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. These are alongside a fun social programme to support networking.

We welcome you to join us in Kumasi, to meet and discuss these important issues with your peers.
