The African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) in conjunction with the African Union Commission (AUC) holds the 4th Africa Water Week from May 14th – 18th, 2012 at the InterContinental Cairo City Stars, hosted by the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, Egypt (MWRI).
The Africa Water Week (aww) 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. It is held annually in keeping with the decision of the AMCOW to institutionalize AWW in order to build momentum on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) water and sanitation targets by 2015, and the 2025 Africa Water Vision. This is in line with AMCOW’s belief that adequate and equitable access to water and sanitation makes a critical contribution to Africa’s progress towards sustainable growth and development.
May 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the formation of AMCOW. The 4th Africa Water Week will therefore celebrate AMCOW’s achievements as we reflect on opportunities for achieving water security and adequate sanitation in Africa. the theme of aww-4 “Water for Growth in Africa, AMCOW’s Journey at 10” becomes a time for stock taking for the continental organisation with the AU mandate to provide political leadership, policy direction and advocacy in the provision, use and management of water resources.
