Re: WASH Futures conference 2016: Pathways to universal and sustained water, sanitation and hygiene

The future of action on WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) looks positive – with the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals global agenda maintaining attention on the need for water, sanitation and hygiene for everyone, all the time. But the path to achieving this global agenda requires new ways of thinking.

How can all WASH actors - governments, private sectors and civil society - work together to ensure WASH, whether at community-scales or larger institutional-scales, to achieve not only sustained access for everyone, but also health, well-being, environmental and economic outcomes for societies?

In May 2016 practitioners and professionals from civil society, governments, private sectors, donors, students and academic institutions, will come together to contribute to the broader international WASH dialogue and share knowledge with the Australian WASH community and partners.

WASH 2016 program and themes
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Australian WASH Reference Group and the International WaterCentre (IWC) are partnering to deliver an international water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) conference in 2016. WASH Futures 2016 builds on the successes of three earlier international WASH conferences in 2008, 2011 and 2014.

The conference comprises five days of activities with two days dedicated to conference-style sessions with parallel streams addressing specific themes, and three days of training workshops relating to the theme of the conference ‘WASH Futures: Pathways to universal and sustained water, sanitation and hygiene’.
  • WASH management for sustainable service delivery
  • WASH business, financing & private sectors
  • Ensuring WASH reaches everyone
  • Moving WASH beyond the household
  • Integrating hygiene to ensure health outcomes
  • WASH and water security
  • WASH in the Pacific: situations and trends

The conference will specifically draw out the issues of private sector participation in WASH, equity and WASH in the Pacific as cross-cutting themes.

Re: WASH Futures conference 2016 – abstracts now open (Brisbane, Australia 16-20 May, 2016)

Hi Willy,

Well, abstract submission due date was 18 October 2015 and based on those abstracts, the program of the conference has been decided upon. Is it clearer now?

The conference consists of 2 days of presentations followed by 3 days of training workshops. See here:

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: WASH Futures conference 2016 – abstracts now open (Brisbane, Australia 16-20 May, 2016)

This looks to be a very interesting conference. But maybe a little clarification on the deadline for submission of abstracts "18 October, 2015"?
