UNESCO, Paris, France

In 2013, following years of development and critically analyzing the Water Sectors in countries across the continent, the African Union and the African Ministers Council for Water announced the need to create a Human Capacity Development Programme, to be implemented by the African Union’s NEPAD Networks of Water Centres of Excellence. UNESCO IHP is working with these Centres of Excellence and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre to address the African Continent’s poorly understood water sector Gaps in Human Capacity.
