AfDB, RWSSI and RWSN’s webinars in November

Together with the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Initiative (RWSSI), the RWSN Network has hosted and co-organised two webinar sessions in November:

  • Webinar 1 – Prioritisation of Rural WASH including Sustainability and Quality of WASH Services (November 2): 467 registered participants, 215 atendees
  • Webinar 2 – Resource Mobilisation and Accountability for Resource Use for Rural WASH (November 23): 350 registered participants, 120 atendees

The events were held in English and French, with simultaneous translation into both languages. Webinar 2 was carried out as part of the Africa Water and Sanitation Week (AWSW), which took place from November 22-26.

The webinars kicked off the RWSSI & RWSN e-discussions on “Prioritising Rural WASH in Socio-economic Development in Africa”, which aim to create momentum for conversations on key topics to be addressed at the 9th World Water Forum in March 2022, in Dakar, Senegal.

The first e-discussion was carried out from November 4-24. The second is still ongoing (29 November-17 December) and can be accessed via the RWSN Dgroups platform.
