Africa civil society
In November 2017, I was invited to a meeting organised by KEWASNET, a coalition which is a member of End Water Poverty, to discuss Kenya’s WASH CSO advocacy strategy based on the 2016 Kenya Water Act.
Kenyan CSOs were excited about this news; at the same time they were cautious about some aspects of it. This is the situation with most laws written through consultative processes when many interest groups lobby for their constituents.
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) and the national governments jointly prepare for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) and the Dakar N'gor Declaration on Water and Sanitation.
