In my ten years of campaigning and advocating for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), we have never had such a unique political opportunity for change as we have had this year at the start of Agenda 2030; the start of the new development goals for the next 15 years. In the past few months, my colleagues and I at the End Water Poverty secretariat have been criss-crossing Africa, Europe, South Asia and Latin America to tap into the enthusiasm of our members at the beginning of this ambitious path to achieve a universally better future for all.
Africa Water Week
This week, governments at Africa Water Week are expected to agree a roadmap to ensure the continent achieves Global Goal 6 on water and sanitation by 2030. Apollos Nwafor, WaterAid’s Regional Advocacy Manager for West Africa, looks at why it is important that these ambitious targets are first met in Africa, and how the roadmap must be shaped to make this a reality.
