“Innovative Financing and Investments to accelerate access to water and sanitation in Africa.”
Recognizing the challenges and bottlenecks in accelerating access to water and sanitation in Africa, as well as the opportunities to follow up on commitments and capitalize on growing political will to address these (the Africa Water Vision 2025, the Africa Union Heads of State Declaration on Water – Sharm El-Sheik, and the e-Thekwini Declaration on Sanitation), a High Level and multi-stakeholder dialogue was convened in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, from the 5th to the 8th of December, 2011. Ministers and high level officials from 33 African Governments participated, including representatives from the 22 member states of WSA, numerous development partners, researchers and practitioners within the sector. In total, approximately 400 participants attended.
