    Dear Colleagues.Is been my pleasure to comments on this program,in Africa we have a lot of difficulties in our sanitation and water supplying just because we’re poor.So this programs has come in a good time to enable us enhance more on our way forward both in financing and socially to upgrade our consumption and supplying to the at public.

    Hey buddy,
    This is not the start of discussion on water and sanitation in Africa. Remember the MDGs that detail how we could achieve water and sanitation needs globally?
    What I will want to see in the upcoming event is a recommitment of the developed countries on the ODI. One will also be interested in seeing the African countries’ commitment in achieving the MGDs and not just waiting with empty bowls for donations. Africa is rich in resources and we can manage many of our problems. Good governance is all we need.
