About WEDC Conferences

Developing knowledge and capacity in water and sanitation

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 that 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 relevant areas, which have been jointly identified and developed with sector stakeholders.

The programme includes an exhibition, evening side events, and an exciting social programme, all designed to maximize interaction and networking opportunities. We aim to include topics related to WASH in the broadest sense. Our event is unique and valued by the sector, for these reasons.
