OECD Water Security for Sustainable Development in Africa – Call for Stakeholder Contributions

  • Sustainable development
  • water security
  • OECD

On 21 March 2018, Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD, received the King Hassan II Great World Water Prize during the 8th World Water Forum (Brasilia). The Prize provides an impetus for the OECD to spearhead new policy work on the economics and governance of water security in Africa in cooperation with partner institutions.

The OECD is presently calling for stakeholders’ contributions to take part in the various components of this programme that will be held within the next two years and that include: a regional survey on water governance in Africa; at least three policy dialogues at different scales (country, basin, city); an online-repository of solutions for better water security in Africa; and a set of cross-cutting activities to foster capacity, raise awareness, and share best practices. The programme will deliver concrete outputs for the 9th World Water Forum (Dakar, 2021) in the form of reports, infographics and user-friendly tools, a communication campaign, online datasets and toolkits.

If you are willing to contribute, please fill in this quick online survey by Friday 28th June.
