Participate in NewIBNET’s support for utility access to learning at the IWA Water and Development Congress 2023

The NewIBNET Partnership – a World Bank-supported initiative that promotes benchmarking and learning across water utilities to improve management practices and performance – is to select and sponsor five of its members to send a designated employee to attend the 2023 IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition in Kigali, Rwanda.

To be considered for the selection, utilities are asked to update their data on the NewIBNET platform by 10 November 2023. This means there is still time for utilities who have not yet joined the NewIBNET partnership to do so, submit data and be eligible.

Hundreds of representatives from utilities and other water organisations will attend the International Water Association’s forthcoming Water and Development Congress & Exhibition on 10-14 December 2023 in Kigali. The NewIBNET sponsored group will have the opportunity to access learning and networking opportunities there, including the Utility Leaders Forum.
