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).

The conference to be held in Marrakesh (Morocco) as the culmination of
more than two years of intensive work under WATERBIOTECH initiative,
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.
