The WEDC International Conference is a comprehensive and interactive learning event, which provides continued professional development for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector professionals. 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 2015, it is timely to reflect upon the achievements of the Millennium Developoment Goals (MDGs) and our respective experiences, and to consider which of this essential learning contributes towards the sustainable delivery of WASH services in the future. We invite partners, and those conducting significant programme and projects with relevant experiences to share these more widely, through presentations of peer reviewed papers, side events and our workshop programme during the event.
