• In Ethiopia, the International Water Stewardship Programme (IWaSP) aims to improve water security for 350,000 people, with a focus on the textile industry.
  • “Water is central to all of our planning: we need it for agriculture, energy, health.  Our common denominator is water,” said Engineer Mbogo Futakamba, Chairman of the National Multi-Sector Water Resources Forum in an interview. “We need partnerships: We want each stakeholder to start planning from the water resources point of view. At the end of the day, we will all have water if we are planning from the perspective of sharing the availability of the resource.”
  • “Networking, getting to know different stakeholders in the water sector, and seeing how communities and ordinary citizens are involved in decision making is what I will take back with me,” said Luciana Mkandara, Capacity and Impact Manager, Water Witness International based in Tanzania. “Learning how communities organise themselves can be very useful for other projects as well.”
