ICA sponsors Africa Water Week
25 July 2016
The Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA) was a major sponsor of the 6th Africa Water Week and the 10th General Assembly of the African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW), which took place in Dar es Salaam from 18 to 22 July 2016.
A key outcome from the meeting was the adoption, by over 30 African water ministers and delegations from over 50 African countries, of a roadmap aimed at achieving sustainable and universal access to safe water and sanitation across Africa.
The strategic objective of the roadmap is to make considerable progress on water security and sanitation, through improving efficiency and transparency while creating a conducive investment climate. Further information about the Dar es Salaam Roadmap is available at the AMCOW website.
The ICA’s sponsorship of AWW and the AMCOW is an example of the work of the ICA’s Water Platform, which strives to scale-up financing for sustainable water infrastructure in Africa, and is in line with the Platform’s mandate to facilitate resource mobilisation and implementation of regional programmes.
The Water Platform also contributes to a key aspect of the ICA’s work, namely enhancing coordination in order to harmonise ICA Members’ priorities and activities with those of African stakeholders.
