We would like to remind you about the Call for Papers for AFRICA 2020. Abstracts of proposed papers should be sent to us by 31 July. For more information about the event, and our Call for Papers brochure (with guidelines for submitting an abstract), please visit our website: To go directly to the Call for Papers brochure click here. (If you intend to send an abstract, but would require some more time, please let us know as soon as possible, before 31 July; the email address is given below).

AFRICA 2021 will bring together experts from all parts of the world, to focus on topics of specific relevance to Africa. It is being convened in partnership with ICOLD and the Government of Uganda, and will be held from 13 to 15 April next year at the Speke Resort Munyonyo, beside Lake Victoria in Uganda.

Uganda’s strong commitment to hydropower makes it a perfect host country; and post-conference tours will enable delegates to visit the most important dams and hydro plants in the country.

Uganda’s Minister of Energy, as well as the Permanent Secretary for Water, the President of the Ugandan Committee on Large Dams, the CEO and Managing Director of Uganda Electricity Generation Company (UEGCL), and the Chairman and Director of the National Water and Sewerage Corporation, have all expressed their personal support for the event; and UEGCL has set up a local Steering Committee to support the organisers.

If you are involved with working alongside African nations to continue to develop their vast hydropower potential, we invite you to submit an abstract now, or to suggest themes for panel discussions and workshops. You can already reserve Exhibition space via the website.

In this year of the unprecedented and tragic Coronavirus pandemic, we are pleased to be moving forward with our very positive plans for this event next year. We look forward to keeping you informed as plans progress, and to welcoming you to Uganda, “the Pearl of Africa”.
