The Doshi East Africa Water Summit was organized to address the issue of access to sustainable water for socio-economic development, by bringing together key stakeholders in the water industry, and providing a platform for them to interact, share, discuss and develop solutions to critical issues affecting the water sector within the East African region.
The summit comprised five main activities:
- Keynote Address & Official Opening
- Exhibitions Tour and Interaction with the Exhibitors
- Presentations and Panel Discussions
- Field Excursions to DOSHI Water HDPE Factory
- Professional Associations Cocktail
The summit involved two days of intensive discussions on critical issues in the water sector, exhibitions of innovations and field excursions to gain skills on the current technologies towards solutions for water sector issues.
The deliberations were structured around three pillars.
- Policy guidelines in the water and sanitation sector
- Technological innovations in relation to access to sustainable water and wastewater solutions
- Financing of public and private sector water projects
The expected solutions based on knowledge and innovations would inform policies and investments in the water sector to contribute to the Big Four Agenda in Kenya and by extension to development in the East Africa water sector, in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 6 of the United Nations; ensuring the availability of clean water and sanitation for all, and the sustainable management of these.
