Media Invite: Second India-Africa Dialogue and Media Briefing Workshop

Sewerage to Sanitation

Opportunities and Challenges for Sustainable Sanitation Solutions for Future

When: March 15, 2016

Where: Accra, Ghana

Over the past years, many countries of the developing world are struggling to find solutions to their immediate problems of poverty, hunger, water scarcity and pollution even as the entire world is faced with the catastrophe of climate change. Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a globally recognized environment think-tank, has been working with partners in India, Asia and the rest of the world to advocate on environmental and developmental issues. CSE’s water programme efforts have been directed towards meeting the twin goals of laying the foundations for a water-prudent society and adapting for climate resilience. We believe this experience needs to be leveraged to share solutions with other countries in the developing world from South America, Africa and Asia to meet the needs of urban populations in the current water and wastewater paradigm which are affordable and sustainable.

In pursuit of this objective, CSE is organizing a one-day media briefing workshop in collaboration with its partner in Africa - MESHA – Media for Environment, Science Health and Agriculture. The event will bring together subject experts and media professionals from across Africa on a platform to discuss with their Indian counterparts common issues related to sustainable water-wastewater solutions. This will be an experience-sharing workshop in which representatives from both parts of Global South will benefit from each other’s knowledge and experience.

The event is open for participation to African journalists – including freelance writers who cover issues of environment and development, pollution, science, health and civil society initiatives. CSE and MESHA-Kenya will support the travel and accommodation of the selected outstation journalists who wish to travel to Accra for this event.
