Africa Water Week 2012

The 4th Africa Water Week, hosted by Egypt from 14th till 18th May 2012, comes at a time that greater attention is being focused on the nexus between water and growth and development, hence the decision to call back attention on how far the continent has exploited water resources to grow Africa’s economies given the sectoral linkages with agriculture, energy, transport, environment and health.

The Africa Water Week is organized by the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) together with the Egyptian Ministry for Water Resources and Irrigation, and represents a political commitment at the highest level with over 1000 participants from governments, regional institutions, international partners, the private sector, the scientific community, civil society, and the media from all over the world, and in particular Africa, meeting to discuss and collectively seek solutions to Africa’s water and sanitation challenges.
