Schedule for 2013
WASHCost offers a free online course for WASH sector professionals. The “Costing Sustainable Services” online course was developed to assist governments, NGOs, donors, and individuals to plan and budget for sustainable and equitable WASH services, using a life-cycle cost approach.
01.06.2013 - 30.11.2013
The WASH in Schools Distance-Learning Course was developed by Emory University and UNICEF as a cost-effective capacitybuilding initiative that reaches practitioners on the ground. This intensive web-based course will help participants identify areas of concern, advocate for improved WASH conditions, select appropriate behaviour change and technology approaches, and monitor programme outputs and outcomes.

9th International Conference on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development, Bucharest, Romania
The aim of the conference is to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary communication between scientists, engineers, economists and professionals working in ecological systems and sustainable development. Emphasis is given to those areas that will benefit from the application of scientific methods for sustainable development, including the conservation of natural systems around the world. The conference objectives have evolved over the years, seeking to integrate thermodynamics, ecology and economics into ‘ecodynamics’. ECOSUD is a challenge for the creation of a new science in line with Prigogine’s statement that “at all levels we observe events associated with the emergence of novelties and narrative elements, which we may associate with the creative power of nature”.
This year's theme is Sanitation, Hygiene, Innovation, and Trends. Join us for inspiring key note addresses from international experts, interactive break out sessions aimed at levels of interest from 'new to WASH' to experienced 'WASH program manager'. Learn about techniques for engaging communities and encouraging change such as Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), and PHAST, technology options for sanitation solutions, and water solutions, technigues for addressing hygiene education, and more.

Advances and Innovations in Pond Treatment Technology
This Conference will focus on the science, development and application of novel pond technologies and related systems for municipal, domestic and industrial wastewater treatment within the broader context of environmental and economic sustainability. Contributions dealing with the integrated wastewater management and assessment of technological and environmental issues related to the operation of wastewater treatment plants by ponds technology will be specially acknowledged.
7th IWA Specialised Membrane Technology Conference and Exhibition for Water and Wastewater Treatment and Reuse, Toronto, Canada
25.08.2013 - 29.08.2013
Built on a series of previous successful membrane technology conferences, this event will again cover the entire range of water related membrane technology, give a platform to present results of the latest research and industrial experience, and facilitate close professional linkages among our membrane communities and water professionals.
Terra Preta Sanitation is an issue of growing concern in the light of water and sanitation, climate change, energy and soil protection. The International Terra Preta Sanitation Conference aims at bringing scientists and practioners together to present their results and share their experiences.
World Water Week is hosted and organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and takes place each year in Stockholm. The World Water Week has been the annual focal point for the globe's water issues since 1991. Every year, over 200 collaborating organisations convene events at the World Water Week. In addition, individuals from around the globe present their findings at the scientific workshops.
