Who of you is planning to attend? What topics should be discussed at the 29th SuSanA meeting? What formats would you prefer for the meeting (we try to include more active participation and room for exchange in the meetings). Please let us know your thoughts in this Forum post

The menitmeter evaluation of the 28th SuSanA meeting suggested (among other things):

- More time for interaction and networking
- More specific studies and less frameworks
- Posters from participants to speak abouth their work

The overall theme of AfWA ICE 2020 is “Breaking new grounds to accelerate access to safe water and sanitation for all in Africa”. For the first time, sanitation management will be one programme track. Furthermore, the official launch of the African Water and Sanitation Academy (AWSA) will form part of the key activities of the Congress. Hence, a session on capacity development during the SuSanA meeting could be of interest to many.

In addition, with the launch of an African Women Sanitation Practicioners Network at AfWA, a gender-focussed session would also reflect recent and urgent developments in the sector.
