Winning the race: Sanitation in rapidly-growing towns

Just seen this, shared by David Shaub-Jones who worked on this project.  This is a great opportunity for WASH sector professionals from the SADC region already working in this area or begining to take up this challenge.

IRC, together with UCLGA, WIN-SA and AusAid, are hosting a Learning and Sharing Workshop around the crucial topic of sanitation services in rapidly growing small town.  The 2 day session, to be held near Johannesburg (during the week commencing 7 November), will explore proactive, tangible ways to deal with pressing sanitation issues in towns experiencing rapid growth in Southern Africa.

SADC participants (eligible countries in green at are hereby invited to apply to participate or contribute to the workshop – which discusses practical and pragmatic ways to seize the current ‘window of opportunity’ that exists in rapidly growing towns.
