We are delighted to announce that the programme of the 7th RWSN Forum (29 Nov-2 Dec in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire) is now available. As you can see, it is a very diverse programme, covering rural and small towns’ water access from policy, financial, practice and user perspectives – with contributions from over 42countries. It is by bringing so much diversity, and many different players that this Forum is tackling the SDG challenge of Water for Everyone! The quality of contributions means that those attending will return home with new knowledge and new connections.
For more information see: https://rwsn7.net/programme/
As our programme is just out now, we have also extended the deadline for regular registration to the 31st October 2016. So those who have not yet managed to register and pay, please try to do so by the 31st October to benefit from the €600 fee. Over 500 people have registered so far, with confirmations from over 130. As with previous RWSN Forums, we expect a very diverse group to participate including government, private sector, NGO, donor, academia and civil society. You can register here.
Many people have been contacting us for sponsorship to attend the event. Alas we have very limited funds as Forum organisers. However, we have prepared a help sheet for you to use within your organisation and with partners in trying to obtain assistance to attend.
Warm wishes et cordialement,
Dr. Kerstin Danert
Director – Secretariat
