The 8th Africa Water Week (AWW) and the 6th AfricaSan conference are set to be held jointly from 22-26 November 2021. The conference, initially planned for 2020 could not be held due to the COVID-19 pandemic that restricted international travel and large gatherings. The joint conference will facilitate dialogue and sharing of knowledge and develop action plans on water, sanitation and hygiene towards the achievement of SDG 6 in Africa. The conferences are meant to mobilize governments and other stakeholders to ensure water security for all across Africa by 2030 and ensure every country achieves access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene and end open defecation by 2030.
