WEDC (the Water Engineering and Development Centre) at Loughborough University is a leading academic and research institution focused on improved delivery of water and sanitation services in low and middle income countries. The WEDC International Conference is a sector platform and learning event which facilitates reflection, debate and exchange of knowledge and ideas, which are rooted in practice.  Attended by sector practitioners, decision makers, academics and researchers, it is the only sector conference to be regularly organised and co-hosted in either Africa or Asia.

Since 2009 the Foundation has provided grants to WEDC valued between £10,000 and £25,000, to support low and middle income country nationals to participate in the WEDC International Conference, and as bursary support for distance learning students to achieve a post graduate certificate in either Water and Waste Engineering or Water and Environmental Management.
