“Ask the Experts” is a series of events launched by GAPWAS (German African Partnership for Water and Sanitation), the chamber and association partnership between German Water Partnership and AfWA. The format aims to establish long-term relationships and regular exchange of technical expertise and experiences between GWP and AfWA members.
For the individual sessions, focal points have been identified on which German and African experts will give joint presentations. In the process findings, case studies and research results will be shared.
Following the presentations, participants will have the opportunity to exchange opinions and ask for advice from speakers and other stakeholders in a discussion.
