With only five years away from the MDG target date of 2015, the 3rd Africa Water Week (AWW) will provide a unique occasion for taking a comprehensive stock of the challenges faced and progresses made across the continent towards achieving the goals and targets set on water and sanitation.
The AWW represents a political commitment at the highest level where governments, regional institutions, international partners, the private sector, the scientific community, civil society, and the media, and in particular Africa, meet to discuss and collectively seek solutions to Africaís water and sanitation challenges.

- Financing Investment in Water for Growth and Development
- Water and Urbanisation
