Equitable and Sustainable WASH Services: Future challenges in a rapidly changing world

The WEDC International Conference is a valued and respected platform for reflection and exchange of knowledge and ideas that are rooted in practice. The title this year recognises that a uncertain future is faced as the world is challenged by the impact of external factors, particularly climate change. The WEDC International Conference seeks to create a safe, open and honest exchange and debate of experiences of the WASH sector within the changing environment. It supports learning and sharing, which is critical for progress towards global goals and aspirations. The open-access repository of conference contributions will also support the sharing of experiences beyond the event and into the future.

Due to the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 42nd WEDC International Conference will now take place entirely online from 13th to 15th September 2021.

Accepted abstracts to be presented at the conference will appear online shortly before the conference opens.

Accepted presentations and posters to be presented at the conference will appear in the Conference Proceedings. Authors and other contributors should note that a condition of submission of a presentation will be that they consent to these appearing online as items in the Proceedings.
