The East African Regional Conference ‘Accelerating Access to Sanitation’ was called to raise awareness of the sanitation challenge, to set a course for significant improvements and to accelerate actions on the ground. The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared 2008 as International Year of Sanitation (IYS). This conference was therefore also the regional launch for International Year of Sanitation (IYS) 2008. The conference attracted more than 190 mostly African water and sanitation specialists from 25 countries to discuss these matters at the start of the IYS. The conference was held in Nairobi, Kenya, from 27 - 28 November, 2007. It was convened by the Kenyan Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and organised jointly by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH and the KfW Development Bank (KfW).

The conference report includes a set of key messages and recommendations.
