AfricaSan5, 5th AfricaSan Conference

18 Feb. 2019 - 22 Feb. 2019 • Cape Town, South Africa

AfricaSan is AMCOW’s path-breaking initiatives to promote prioritization of sanitation and hygiene in Africa. It is a Pan-African initiative to build momentum to address the ongoing epidemic of a lack of access to safe sanitation and large-scale open defecation.

It has lobbied to influence global, regional and national sanitation and hygiene targets; to better make the case for investment in sanitation and hygiene, and to improve sectoral performance. AfricaSan has a unique focus on the establishment and tracking of progress towards achieving the AfricaSan commitments (eThekwini commitments (2008 – 2015) and Ngor commitments (2015 – 2030) as well as the AfricaSan Awards, aimed at honoring governments, organizations and individuals making strides in Africa’s sanitation and hygiene sector.
