The objective of the “Water utility Engagement in Urban Sanitation” webinar series is simple but powerful: to promote the sharing of knowledge, experiences and lessons learned among water operators. Through this series, we aim to highlight 10 diverse case studies from across Africa. These cases offer a window into the various approaches that water utilities are taking to improve access to urban sanitation. In each session, we will delve into the practical realities faced by water utilities, exploring both successes and setbacks. We aim to facilitate an open dialogue on best practices and the valuable lessons learned from failures. This peer-to-peer format will serve as a collaborative platform for water operators to learn from and be inspired by each other. Be part of this dynamic exchange: your participation will help highlight the critical role of water utilities in shaping the urban sanitation landscape and advancing sustainable sanitation solutions across Africa. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details on the upcoming webinar series.

All these webinars will be held in English and French!
