Owing to the success of the 1st Af-YWPF, the forum has grown to attract more than 570 members from all African countries, thus becoming an important platform at the African continent for capacity building of Africa’s future leaders in water-related sectors. Thus, keeping in mind the importance of the Af-YWPF, the MWRI of Egypt, AFRWG of the ICID, ENCID and ICID are working collaboratively to organize the 2nd Af-YWPF at the CWW 2019. The proposed five-day forum will include the forum meeting, three days training workshop and two days to converge with activities of the Cairo Water Week to give YP’s the opportunity to engage with experts and stakeholders in the water sector.
The Forum catering for Young Water Professionals of diverse backgrounds including utility, government, research, and private consulting and industry engagement will be an action-packed 26 hours, spread over a 3-day period. During this span, key eminent (and experienced) resource, persons, drawn from the academics and the professions, will be invited to have 15 hrs of contact/training/interactive sessions with Af-YWP; split into different hands-on-training workshops, seminars.
