AFRICA 2022 Conference: Water Storage and Hydropower Development in Africa

AFRICA 2022 will be the fourth conference and exhibition in this series. The first took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 2013, under the auspices of the African Union, with a keynote address from the Commissioner for Energy and Industry. The second was held in Marrakech, Morocco in 2017, under the High Patronage of HE King Mohammed VI.

AFRICA 2019 moved south to Windhoek, Namibia, and had strong participation from NamPower, the Global Water Partner- ship – Southern Africa, and the Southern African Power Pool. The World Bank, African Development Bank, and the African Union, have all contributed much to the programmes.

Uganda is an enthusiastic local partner for AFRICA 2022. International delegates and accompanying persons will meet in beautiful surroundings, for three days of sessions, preceded by workshops and training seminars, and followed by tours to hydro schemes.

There will be plenty of additional networking opportunities, and cultural excursions.
