Contribute to the African Water Association's Publications


The African Water Association produces five (5) magazines each year, of which three (3) are general information and two (2) are devoted to the promotion of best practices and knowledge sharing. The general information magazine, AfWA News , echoes the activities of AfWA members and professionals in the WASH sector. AfWA News is released in April, August and November of each year. A hardcopy of this magazine is distributed to members during AfWA meetings and to visitors to our stand at exhibitions. The digital version can be downloaded for free on AfWA’s website, www.afwa-hq.org . Share water is released twice a year in June and November. It is focused on knowledge sharing and best practices of the African water and sanitation sector and the rest of the world.
