The Gender, Water and Development Conference hosted by the South African Water Research Commission, scheduled to take place from 7 to 11 July 2014 in East London, South Africa has been postponed.
The newly appointed Minister of Water and Sanitation in the new South African government has expressed her concerns to the Water Research Commission that holding the conference so soon into the new term of office for the government is not conducive to her or the government, being able to fully engage with what she considers to be a critical issue, that of gender, water and development.
As a result, the conference has been postponed to a later date, probably sometime in November 2014.
We will keep you updated on any new developments and confirmation of the new dates.
