In connection with the upcoming IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition on 10-14 December 2023 in Rwanda, this edition has a special focus on low- and middle-income countries. The 2023 Recognition Programme aims to raise awareness of the steps being taken by water and sanitation utilities operating in challenging conditions to respond to climate change. This initiative seeks to recognise ambitious and innovative utilities in low- and middle-income countries that are leading the way towards a low carbon water and sanitation sector, embracing the shift needed to adapt to and mitigate climate change while raising awareness and inspiring other utilities to take action. The 2023 edition is proudly supported by AfWASA.

Applications are still open until 30 October. We invite utilities operating in the Global South to apply. Applicants are encouraged to take advantage of the extended deadline to finalise their applications, incomplete applications will not be considered.


Why apply?

Selected utilities will be recognised in a formal event during the IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition on 10-14 December 2023 in Kigali, Rwanda. The five most inspiring narratives will be selected for a presentation during the Congress and IWA will cover the travel costs for one representative from each selected utility to join the event.
