The RWSN Forum is about bringing together those who are passionate about rural water services, be they water users, practitioners, service providers, political leaders, researchers, funders or policy makers.
“Water for Everyone” is the massive challenge that has been set by Sustainable Development Goal 6. We need innovation in many forms – not just new technologies and new knowledge, but also new ways to improve the quality of rural water services so that things that are already working can be sustained and replicated to meet growing demand. That’s where you come in: what experiences do you, or your organisation, have from the last few years that is helping to move the sector forward? What the big opportunities ahead? Can some of the old challenges that have dogged the sector for decades be put to rest?
You can find full details and guidelines on the 7th RWSN Forum website here: https://rwsn7.net/participate/submissions/
The Open Call for Submissions includes short and long papers, posters, films and pictures or illustrations, so be creative! Be provocative! To get a feel for the sort of submissions we have had in the past (and also help with the context of where rural water was in 2011) you can find all the papers and posters from the 6th RWSN Form here:
The deadline for first submissions is 30th April 2016.
