The Africa 2020 Water Conference is Africa’s biggest water event with distinct sectors and a shared innovation zone running under a single event. This comprehensive, two-day event is filled with case studies and thought-leadership designed to tackle all of the current water and wastewater challenges in one go. For ages, freshwater has come from rivers, lakes and streams, and groundwater aquifers, and as demand increase and climate change alters the location and timing of water supply, these traditional sources are becoming unavailable, more difficult, or increasingly expensive to develop. This has led to many countries across the globe to switch to alternative sources of water, including rainwater, storm water, grey-water, reclaimed water, and brackish and seawater desalination.
The conference brings together leaders and professionals to find innovative ways to enhance, asset resilience, mitigate risk against flooding and pollution, assess investment. The conference aims to bring and discuss utilities governance and management, and project financing. It also aims to bring together operations leaders to drive collaboration, explore the best methods for the removal of pollutants and recovery of vital substances, and drive innovative treatment processes that keep costs low and benefit the natural environment. It will bring together technical leaders to assess the regulatory and environmental issues around sludge, explore innovation in recycling and reuse, and address opportunities and benefits of desalination on the continent.
The conference will be held in Cape Town-a beautiful and historic city in South Africa and the home of leading sustainable water programs, technology development and academic research centres.The event venue is a nationally-recognised hotel and special activities and tours are planned. This Call for Papers is your invitation to join us in the “Mother City”, Cape Town, for an insightful event filled with networking and knowledge exchange.
