Bai Mass Taal, AMCOW (African Ministers Council on Water) Executive Secretary

“Of the projected additional 2.4 billion to the global population between 2015 and 2050, Africa’s share is estimated at 1.3 billion and the difficulties African cities currently face in providing sustainable water services will be exacerbated. At African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW), we are thinking ahead, providing the necessary political leadership, policy direction and advocacy in bringing about sustainable management of water resources. AMCOW therefore welcomes the UNESCO Megacities Alliance for Water as the initiative aligns with Africa Water Vision 2025 which envisions an Africa where there is equitable and sustainable use and management of water resources for poverty alleviation, socio-economic development, regional cooperation and environment”.
