5th Global WOPs Congress Mobilizing collaboration for future-ready water and sanitation service providers • Bonn, Germany

UN-Habitat’s GWOPA convenes the global water and sanitation utility community at the 5th Global WOPs Congress in Bonn, Germany, on 22-25 May 2023.

Reliable water and sanitation services are critical in difficult times, yet conflict, rapid population growth, climate change, ecosystem degradation, and an enduring pandemic are complicating the work of operators.

The congress provides a platform to water, and sanitation practitioners will get a platform to discuss  how collaboration between operators can help them navigate these challenges.

50th IAH Congress • Cape Town, South Africa

Dear Fellow Hydrogeologists

The World has changed. For the past two years we’ve been isolated, and we’ve been interacting online. But through this all, we adapted. A pandemic taught the World to engage differently and to make things work. Congresses became hybrid. Yet, through this all, hydrogeology grew stronger and hydrogeological science developed further.

In 2023, we come together as hydrogeologists at the southern point of Africa. We offer extraordinary cuisine, a diverse culture, large parks, biomes from deserts to tropical forests, and - most importantly - South African hospitality. South Africa and Cape Town are extraordinary destinations and accessible from most international airports.

The 50th IAH Worldwide Groundwater Congress of the International Association of Hydrogeologists will be hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa from 18 to 22 September 2023. Excluding council meetings in Pretoria in 2011, it is the third on the continent after Cape Town in 2000 and Marrakech in 2014. Following congresses in Brazil in South America, Belgium in Europe, China in Asia, and now South Africa in Africa, this is the fourth continent for an IAH congress in four years.

In 2023, we celebrate the early careers and their importance in the development of the IAH and the hydrogeology profession. We celebrate the growth into younger membership. In 2023, we look at growing membership. We call for new members, but also for new chapters, groups, and networks. Groundwater affects the entire planet. Our community is growing, but it should also expand into new countries and scientific developments.

Research, modelling and consulting work is developing at discrete scales right through to regional scale work related to the critical zone and transboundary aquifers. Data starts at the molecular level and moves to “big data”. We up-scale data and we down-scale data. Datapoints become temporal data. And we govern at different scales of involvement. So, in 2023, we look at Groundwater: A Matter of Scale.

We invite you all to join us in-person in Cape Town in 2023!

Welcome to South Africa!

UNC Water and Health Conference University of North Carolina • Chapel Hill, USA (in person and online)

Since its founding in 2009, the goal of the Water Institute at UNC has been to inform the way the world works on water, sanitation and hygiene issues by generating the evidence that drives improvements in both practice and policy. The annual UNC Water and Health Conference is intended to advance these goals by creating a widely accessible space where policymakers, practitioners and researchers can gather to review the evidence, interrogate the science and improve old and develop new approaches to expanding WaSH access.

The 2022 UNC Water and Health Conference was a landmark event bringing together stakeholders from over 100 countries around the world with more than 2,400 people registering to attend the week-long event in virtual and in-person format. More than 280 unique organizations and universities were represented.

The 2023 Conference will continue to explore the latest learnings around WaSH. The event will include plenaries, side events, verbal presentations and poster presentations.
