Ghana – Water And Engineering Conference Ends

The 33rd Water, Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) International Conference ended in Accra last Friday with a call for strong advocacy and political will to address sanitation issues in Africa.

The five-day conference, which attracted over 300 participants from Africa and Asia, called for hard work and frank discussions on sanitation to save over 2.6 billion people in Africa living without safe and hygienic places of convenience.

Mr John Lane, a member of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council of WEDC, said Africa was not doing well in managing sanitation, despite an increase in population.  He said the continent should, apart from the health and social benefits, consider the income generation potential in proper sanitation management.
