around the world to co-create the innovative solutions
needed to help solve today's water problems.
The lack of water and adequate sanitation threatens the daily lives of millions of Egyptians. Developments in information and communications technology have proven invaluable in making water more accessible, sustainable and safer for people worldwide. The Water Hackathon is the first event of its kind—a global gathering of water experts with technologists for an intensive weekend dedicated to creating ICT solutions to local water challenges. In addition to Cairo, Water Hackathons will simultaneously be taking place in Bangalore, Kampala, London, Nairobi and Washington D.C. During the Water Hackathon, water experts will be working directly with teams of programmers, software engineers and data specialists combining their technical skills to help mitigate the water challenges faced in their respective countries. The Water Hackathon is also a competition in which teams’ innovations will be judged by a panel of expert from the public and private sector. Prizes will be awarded to the teams that come up with the best concepts. Please join us at The American University in Cairo’s Moataz El Alfi Hall on the New Cairo campus on October 21st and 22nd and share your skills and expertise to help develop ICT solutions.
