What's new for 2014?

In 2014, we are delighted to be co-hosting the conference with the National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE), located in central Hanoi, Vietnam. Hanoi, with over a thousand years of history, is the capital City of Vietnam, a country of hidden charm with many attractions for tourism.

Dedicated to the sharing of knowledge and development of capacity in WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) appropriate to local contexts, the WEDC International Conference provides a valuable platform for reflection, debate and exchange, rooted in practice.

The week begins with three days of peer reviewed paper presentations and discussion which combine practically focussed briefing papers with more academic refereed papers. A two day capacity development programme follows, to develop skills and update knowledge with current good practice.

The programme also incorporates: sharing of best practices through side events hosted by international agencies; a vibrant exhibition; interesting field visits; and importantly carefully structured social events which help participants relax and optimise networking opportunities.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hanoi in September 2014!
