From 28 October to 1 November 2014, the Waternet Conference 2014 was held in Lilongwe, Malawi. The conference rotates countries each year, and this year it was in Malawi.
The conference brought together water and sanitation researchers from Botswana, Lethoso, Malawi, South African, Mozambique, Tanzania, DRC, Namibia, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and more. It was a great opportunity to hear about the research of neighboring counties, lessons learned, and as with any conference good networking.
Mzuzu University had two display tables, one focused more on Centre research and a second for the SMART Centre work on low cost technologies, both of which were well received by attendees. The team also presented two papers and a special session on low-cost technologies.
