Second Edition of Kenyan-German Water Week: taking place in October 2017

The 2017 Water Week will bring again together Kenyan private sector, political decision makers as well as representatives of water utilities with technology experts from Germany. The objective is to strengthen knowledge transfer and exchange experiences as well as discuss strategies for a way-forward. The German experts will comprise subject matter experts, industry professionals and company representatives, who conduct workshops on the basis of their expertise.

Kenyan stakeholders of the water and wastewater sector can benefit greatly from the technological know-how conveyed during the workshops conducted by the presenting German specialists. German experts participating in this week have the unique opportunity to liaise with Kenyan technicians, experts and water/ wastewater industry professionals in order to strengthen business and capacity developing relationships and enhance already existing contacts.
