2012 presents full calendar of activities following ICA’s participation in African Water Week in Cairo, 15-18 May 2012

3 août 2012

The year 2012 has brought a full calendar of activities for the Water Platform (WP) of the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA). Launched in 2011, the first ICA WP Meeting was held in March 2012, attracting international decision-makers in the African water sector for targeted discussions on Water Resource and Climate Change Adaptation Programs. This meeting not only set the stage for discussions at the World Water Forum, but presented the WP with an invitation by the African Ministers' Council on Water (AMCOW) to convene two sessions on investment and financing for African water infrastructure during African Water Week (AWW) in Cairo in May.

To support AMCOW and AWW activities, the ICA Water Platform provided financing for the event with funds from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation & Development – an important ICA member and sponsor for all ICA water-related activities. The WP also joined forces with colleagues at the African Development Bank to co-convene two sessions:

  • Session on ‘Optimizing Water Infrastructure Investment in Africa’ in Subtheme 2 on ‘Infrastructure for Growth and Climate Resilience Development’
  • Session on ‘Financing Transboundary and National Water Resources’ in Subtheme 4 on ‘Governance and Finance’

The ICA Water Platform’s calendar of activities continues to fill as participation in the AWW presented numerous new possibilities for collaboration and support of African water infrastructure.  Future ICA WP activities may include matchmaking and resource mobilization activities with Regional Economic Communities and River Basin Organizations; and participation in the area of knowledge sharing, project preparation and resource mobilization with the AMCOW Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP).
