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 http://bit.ly/pF9G3p) 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.

Deadline for applications is 5th October 2011 – see http://www.irc.nl/page/66412 for more information, including the application form and news about the travel bursaries available. TRAVEL bursaries EXIST, BUT are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
