Dear Members and Friends,
We deeply regret to inform you that our 22nd International Congress and Exhibition, initially scheduled from February 18 to 22, 2024 in Conakry, Republic of Guinea, is cancelled for reasons of force majeure relating to an explosion that occurred in a fuel depot in Conakry, during the night of December 17 to 18, 2023.

Given the situation, the Government of the Republic of Guinea, through the Minister of Energy, Hydraulics and Hydrocarbons, officially requested AfWASA on January 2, 2024, to postpone the event.

On January 9, 2024, AfWASA Executive Board, in collaboration with Société des Eaux de Guinée (SEG), the local organizer of the Congress, sent a mission to Guinea to meet the authorities and assess the situation. Following this mission, it was concluded that it was impossible to organize such a large-scale event this year, leading to its outright cancellation.

We sincerely apologize to our members, partners, and friends for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause and look forward to seeing you at our next Congress, scheduled from February 17-20, 2025 in Kampala, Uganda.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

The Executive Director
Olivier GOSSO
