Re: 2015 Water and Health Conference Deadline extended for call for abstracts and side event proposals

The deadline for abstracts and side event submissions for the Water and Health Conference at the University of North Carolina has been extended to May 1. We are particularly seeking abstract submissions from implementing organizations.

The conference themes are:
WaSH for the future: SDGs, innovation, resources, integration, and urbanization
Hygiene and behavior
WaSH in emergencies and outbreaks
Learning from practice: MEL, action research, case studies
Water supply and quality
Sanitation: protecting households, communities and environment

You can submit abstracts here waterinstitute.unc.edu/waterandhealth/call-papers/ and side events here waterinstitute.unc.edu/waterandhealth/side-events/

Since one of our themes is WaSH in emergencies and outbreaks we are likely to open a special call for papers on that theme over the summer in light of the earthquake in Nepal. More information on this soon.

Please pass this along to all those interested.
