Africa Day, March 18, 2009
During the World Water Forum, the Africa Day Program is being held March 18, 2009.
The activities will be in three sessions as follows:
- An Opening Session during which AMCOW and its partners will share thoughts on promoting the continent’s water and sanitation agenda
- The Second Session will involve the presentation and launching of the Regional Paper by a high level African Personality;
- The Third Session will examine the key water security and sanitation challenges and solicit reactions from participants.
The Africa Day provides an opportunity to promote the 2nd African Water Week, planned to take place in South Africa in 2009, and proposed hosting of the 6th World Water Forum in Africa. It also provides a platform for information and knowledge sharing, networking and participation in debates on global and regional water issues.
