AFRICA 2021 ~ Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

Lake Victoria, Uganda (15-17 March 2022)

The Aqua~Media team is delighted to announce the next regional conference for Africa, to be convened in partnership with ICOLD and the Government of Uganda, from 15 to 17 March 2022 at the luxurious Speke Resort Munyonyo, beside Lake Victoria, in Uganda.

AFRICA 2021 – the Fourth International Conference and Exhibition on Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa will bring together experts from all parts of the world, to focus on topics of specific relevance to Africa. Our call for papers is now open (see below).

Uganda’s Minister of Energy, as well as the Permanent Secretary for Water, the President of the Ugandan Committee on Large Dams, the CEO and Managing Director of Uganda Electricity Generation Company (UEGCL), and the Chairman and Director of the National Water and Sewerage Corporation, have all expressed their personal support for the event, and UEGCL has set up a local Steering Committee to support the organisers.

Uganda’s strong commitment to hydropower makes it the perfect host country; post-conference tours will enable delegates to visit the most important dams and hydro plants in the country.
