AfWA and its partner GAPWAS (German-African Partnership for Water and Sanitation), are pleased to invite you to the 2nd edition of "Ask the Experts", the German African Exchange of Expertise in the Field of Water and Sanitation to be held online on Thursday, January 20, 2022 under the theme: leak detection.

The technical exchange will be conducted online for 2 hours. After a short opening the two African and to German experts will give a max. 10min. presentation about their expertise on the topic (current challenges case study, research, best practice etc.). The presentations will be followed by a min. of 60 minutes of Q&A to allow a real exchange between the audience and the experts.

The audience will be composed of AfWA and GWP members, who have a technical background or have at least a high interest in the topic. They will not only get the opportunity to ask questions related to the presentations, but they can also ask for advice in cases of specific challenges they are facing.

About the concept

The German African Partnership for Water and Sanitation (GAPWAS) is the cooperation project between the African Water Association (AfWA) and German Water Partnership (GWP), financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Coorperation and Development, supported by sequa gGmbH. One of the goals of GAPWAS is to foster joint workshops as well as technical and peer to peer exchange and to establish contacts between GWP and AfWA members.

The present concept shall contribute to these goals by combining the expertise of German and African experts in the field of water and sanitation in the form of a jointly given workshop for the members of both associations. Eventually, the joint workshops might form the base for long-term relationships and further exchange of technical expertise and firsthand experience between Germany and the African continent. The joint identification of workshop topics underscores the mutual intention to address the real challenges and needs of AfWA members and thus contribute to a sustainable improvement of drinking water supply and sanitation in the region.

The workshops will be conducted online for 1,5 - 2 hours each and will take place on a regular basis, ideally every two to three months. Each workshop shall be conducted under a specific technical topic with at least one expert member of GWP and one expert from the membership or network of AfWA.
