The official launching ceremony of the 22nd AfWASA International Congress and Exhibition took place this Tuesday, March 26, 2024 in Kampala, Uganda.

The theme of the event, scheduled for February 16 to 20, 2025 at the Speke Resort Convention Centre, Munyonyo, is: Water and sanitation for all: a secure future for Africa. It will bring together around 4,000 water and sanitation stakeholders from various regions of the world to share experiences, exchange ideas and collaborate on best practices and policies for the growth of the sector.

Speaking at the launch, Dr Silver Mugisha, Managing Director of National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), the event's host, said the congress will be an opportunity to assess progress in access to water and sanitation services across the continent. It will also provide delegates with opportunities for networking and business partnerships.

For his part,  AfWASA Executive Director, Mr. Olivier Gosso, expressed his gratitude to NWSC for agreeing to host the event for the 3rd time. He affirmed that this congress will be exceptional in terms of the number of participants, the scientific content and the progress Africa will have made in the water and sanitation sector, for the benefit of Africans.

It is worth noting that the 22nd AfWASA International Congress and Exhibition was originally scheduled for February 18-22, 2024 in the Republic of Guinea. However, for reasons of force majeure in Conakry, the Guinean capital, the congress was first postponed and then cancelled.
