AMCOW @ 15 Anniversary LogoThe African Ministers' Council on Water (AMCOW) will celebrate its 15th anniversary this November. The celebration, which is scheduled to hold on the 27th and 28th of November 2017 in Abuja, Nigeria will also feature an Executive Council Meeting of African Water Ministers on the 27th of November, and Strategic Dialogue with Development Partners on the 28th November 2017.

Organised by AMCOW in collaboration with the Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture of the African Union Commission alongside regional and international partners, the 15th anniversary celebration will be hosted by the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, represented by the Nigerian Ministry of Water Resources.

In a statement signed by the AMCOW Executive Secretary, Dr Canisius Kanangire, the 15th anniversary celebration represents “an auspicious moment to showcase leading success stories and achievements conceptualized and facilitated by AMCOW within the ambit of its mandate as the continent’s apex water institution.”

“Over the past fifteen years of its existence, AMCOW has contributed immensely to the realization of the Africa Water Vision 2025 and the attainment of African Union’s goals of stronger cooperation, peace and security, poverty eradication and the economic development of Africans and Africa,” Dr Kanangire added.

The theme for the 15th anniversary is “Towards Water Security and Safe Sanitation for Africa.”
