The organizers of Ghana Water Forum 2011 have now confirmed Monday 5th to Wednesday 7th September 2011 as the new dates for the forum. It became necessary to amend the date as it was difficult getting a venue for the earlier date announced.
“We know how difficult is may be for many potential participants to attend the Opening Forum on a Monday, but we wish to plead with all to bear with us as we have no control over the venues,” says Attah Arhin, Chairman of the GWF Procurement Committee.
The delay in confirming the date and venue has also caused a delay in all publicity activities for the Forum. This has also necessitated a shift in the deadlines for sublission of papers from Monday 4th July to Monday, 18th July. The public and all potential authors need more time to develop their papers.
The organizers therefore with to appeal to the public, WASH stakeholders and interested participants especially interested authors to endeavour to beat the deadline for paper submission.
