A delegation from the African Water and Sanitation Association (AfWASA), led by its Executive Director Mr. Sylvain Usher, is in Conakry, Guinea, from April 12 to 14, 2023, as part of the preparations of the 22nd AfWASA International Congress and Exhibition. The objective of this mission is to support the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), and to share experiences for a successful event.

During the discussions, the chairman of the LOC, Mr. Camara Aboubacar, General Manager of the Société des Eaux de Guinée (SEG), welcomed the decision of AfWASA to allow Guinea to host its 22nd Congress, "despite the exceptional situation it is going through".

It is a sign of the trust you place in us, and we are committed to proving that we can overcome the challenge," Camara said

Guinea is called "the water tower of Africa" because of its vast water potential. However, access of the populations to water remains a challenge. Organizing this congress will allow the population to realize that the issue of access to water and sanitation services is at the heart of the country's authorities' concerns, and that they are doing their best to address it," continued the SEG's General Director.

The Executive Director of AfWASA, Sylvain Usher, welcomed the willingness of Guinea to organize the event. He reaffirmed his confidence in the team and in its ability to successfully carry out all activities.

The discussion session was followed by an experience sharing on the organization of the 21st AfWASA Congress held in February 2023 in Abidjan, the working sessions of the subcommittees and finally the visit of the Palais du Peuple of Guinea, where the Congress will be held.

All in Guinea Conakry, from 18 to 22 February 2024 for the 22nd AfWASA International Congress and Exhibition.
