This webinar, which will be held on 29 April 2021 will share innovative advances in two projects focused on early warning, climate change, resilience, and food security in Sub-Saharan Africa. This webinar will discuss some of the ways in which data can be used, and datasets can be combined, to support WASH, agriculture, and livelihood programming, and to enhance the sustainability and resilience of development outcomes. There will be an opportunity for participants to engage in discussion with the presenters.
The two projects, one in East Africa and the other in Southern Africa, are as follows:
• The Joint Emergency Operation Plan (JEOP) Early Warning System in Ethiopia is primarily an emergency food relief mechanism and includes weekly field-level data collection.
• Mzansi Amanzi is a satellite-based national water resource status monitoring and reporting capability in South Africa.
The webinar will be offered in both French and English and is jointly hosted by SCALE and PRO-WASH as part of their collaboration on sustainable agriculture and integrated water resources management.

Universal access to safe, affordable drinking water for all rural people can be achieved, but the challenge remains huge. RWSN, as the global network for rural water professionals, is here to help you meet that challenge. In member surveys you have told us that you would like to connect with each other at national or regional levels and that you want access to more training opportunities.
So, we invite you to take RWSN to the next level. The RWSN Roadmap is a plan for the evolution of the network in the coming decade and you can read it here (executive summary in English, French and Spanish attached). You are invited to add your comments directly on the website or via this survey, and to email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also invite you to take part in a lively e-discussion between 17 and 30 May:
• Would RWSN regional hubs or country chapters work? How would they work?
• Should RWSN be a network of individuals? An association of organisations? A network focused just on training and professional development? Or something else….
The discussion will launch on Monday 17 May and is open to anyone who registers on the e-discussion group.

The WEDC International Conference is a valued and respected platform for reflection and exchange of knowledge and ideas that are rooted in practice. Our title this year recognises that we face a future that is uncertain as the world is challenged by the impact of external factors, particularly climate change. The WEDC International Conference seeks to create a safe, open and honest exchange and debate of experiences of the WASH sector within our changing environment. It supports learning and sharing, which is critical for progress towards global goals and aspirations. The open-access repository of conference contributions will also support the sharing of experiences beyond the event and into the future.
