The vision over the entire water cycle, as well as the reconsideration of the way water is used and waste water reused to address the growing urban water management challenges in Africa, is the motivation for the next capacity building event being organized by the African Water Facility (AWF) in collaboration with the Global Water Partnership (GWP) in Abidjan, from 25th to 28th January 2016. The Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) approach will be analyzed from different aspects with a focus on its principles and benefits, with a better understanding of how water sources, water supply, sanitation, wastewater, storm water and solid waste interact with one another.
The workshop will attract participation of about 25 professionals from AWF, ADB and GWP. Participants will discuss a complete program with experts’ interventions across the globe, with interactive presentations, group exercises with the aid of technology.
This IUWM Workshop will be drawing on the experience gathered with the African Water Facility in IUWM appraisal missions conducted in Kinshasa (DR Congo) and in Marondera (Zimbabwe) as well as on an IUWM toolkit recently developed by GWP in collaboration with the University of South Florida and the Water Partnership Program of the World Bank. At the end of this event, participants will have relevant tools for better assessment and monitoring of projects.
