First Annual – KENYA WATER WEEK 2016

“From Aid to Trade: Enhancing Business Partnerships & Innovation for Sustainable Water and Sanitation Provision in Africa.”

The Ministry of Water and Irrigation together with Council of Governors, the Water Services Trust Fund, KEWASNET, KEWI and other collaborating institutions are preparing for the Kenya Water Week 2016 Conference and Exhibition to be held on 20th to 25th November 2016. The Conference venue will be Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya.
The theme of the Conference is: From Aid to Trade: Enhancing Business Partnerships & Innovation for Sustainable Water and Sanitation provision in Africa. This theme has been arrived at in recognition of the global shift from Aid to Trade, and the need for sustainable financing and development.
The aim of the Conference is to provide a networking opportunity and global platform for public and private sector players to interact and dialogue on water issues in order to enhance business and innovation while matching water sector challenges to solutions. This will no doubt contribute towards more sustainable and economically viable service delivery, and ultimately towards sustainable development. It is expected that the Conference will bring together Government institutions, Water Utilities, Research and Academic Institutions, Private Sector Institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations among others from around the world.
