42nd WEDC International Conference

13th Sep 2021 to 15th Sep 2021

For information and registration see WEDC website

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, the WEDC conference in 2021 will take place entirely online.

Equitable and sustainable WASH services: Future challenges in a rapidly changing world

This year's topic recognises that we face a future that is uncertain as the world is challenged by the impact of external factors, particularly climate change. The WEDC International Conference seeks to create a safe, open and honest exchange and debate of experiences of the WASH sector within our changing environment. It supports learning and sharing, which is critical for progress towards global goals and aspirations. The open-access repository of conference contributions will also support the sharing of experiences beyond the event and into the future.

Over three days, the 42nd Conference will comprise:

  • Online presentations and interactive discussions of peer-reviewed content
  • Agency events from international organisations working in the sector
  • A Poster Gallery for summaries of WASH projects and programmes
  • An Online Exhibition Area: a unique and valuable opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their cutting edge developments, products and services
  • The opportunity for delegates to meet and network in our virtual rooms

The programme can be downloaded here.
