About Event

This event which is the second in the series (the first WASH Innovation Fair was held Nov 22, 2021) is focused on identifying SMEs with innovative ideas in the WASH Sector and supporting them with technical, commercial and business advise to enable them take their innovative ideas from initiation to market entry. It involves a Call for Entry for a Hackathon that will culminate in the selection of the top five (5) winners with the smartest and practical ideas fit for implementation. Overall, the event aims to contribute to the drive by the Federal Government of Nigeria to end open defecation by 2025 and to make clean water and sanitation easily available to all Nigerians in line with Goal 6 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
