Closing the Mauritius reporting series : lessons learnt from the conference on water management in Africa (Mauritius reporting series)

The conference on water in Mauritius I have been reporting about over the last weeks, was a big success. Every one could learn a lot from others. But the most important in the encounter with all these different people, learning who they are, what they work on, what their major challenges are. Also conference came up with a list of recommendations for policy maker, that is currently still under revision (i will share the final recommendations when they will be available).

Find here Dr Michael Atchia (http://www.michael-atchia.info) from Mauritius a co-organizer of the conference about his take home message and explaining more about the recommendations.

Here Zelina Mula from the academy of science of South Africa about her experience at the conference :

And there some voices of female researchers about why water is so important in the African context and what their take home message from the conference is.

This finishes the Mauritius reporting series. It was a great conference in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. I would like to thank the organizers and the funders for giving me opportunity to join, learn and enjoy...
