Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply

The International Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” is the closing event of WATERBIOTECH project, a Coordination Action supported by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). In the course of the WATERBIOTECH project, a consortium comprising international partners is developing a practical approach using biotechnology as a simple and cost-effective method for wastewater treatment in Africa.

The WATERBIOTECH-Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” in Marrakesh (Morocco) from January 8-10 2014 will bring together members of WATERBIOTECH consortium in conjunction with national and regional decision makers, water professionals, scientists and practitioners.

The event includes the presentation of scientific papers related to relevant aspects of water management, water treatment and water supply in Africa as well as discussion panels and workshops. The scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in biotechnology for water treatment. Development in Africa needs bottom-up approaches in which the necessities of all actors are taken into account as WATERBIOTECH project has pursued.

The network between Africa and Europe resulted from WATERBIOTECH project has led to mutual learning experiences. The intention of this conference is to extend this fruitful cooperation to all participants of this conference and widely disseminate the results of WATERBIOTECH initiative.
