The Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group is looking forward to our sixth World Water Summit, a one-day water, sanitation, and hygiene education (WASH) conference on May 30th in Sydney, the day before the International Convention begins. Participants will learn the latest from world experts, experienced Rotarians, and potential supporters about how to design, implement and monitor effective WASH programs. This year’s theme, collaboration, will focus on improving Rotary projects and programs by including the local community, local government, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and other experts.
Rotarians with varied exposure to WASH initiatives will learn new strategies and expand their service networks. Those interested in starting a WASH project for the first time will learn from experienced field experts. Rotarians with WASH project familiarity can gain new approaches to improving project sustainability while experienced participants who have implemented successful projects will connect with Rotary clubs and outside organizations to expand their project impact.
