The Africa Water and Sanitation Local Authorities (AWASLA) Network is an exciting new dynamic, interactive and dedicated pan-African network for African local governments and their associated institutions engaged in all aspects of the urban water cycle (water supply, sanitation, storm and wastewater management). AWASLA provides a unique platform enabling local governments to exchange knowledge and good practice, consider emerging challenges and innovations and explore collaborative action. All towards seeking a paradigm shift for more sustainable, resilient and equitable urban water and sanitation practices in Africa.
AWASLA aims to:
AWASLA is open to all local and sub-national governments, and their associations in Africa, committed to achieving more sustainable and effective urban water and sanitation management practices in African cities.
African cities are growing at 3.9% annually, the highest in the world, and existing water management systems cannot keep up with the growing demand. Demands are expected to quadruple over the next 25 years. Concerted efforts are needed by decision-makers to find innovative solutions in order to address the existing backlog in respect to water and sanitation services whilst extending their infrastructure to serve new developments.
This project is co-financed as part of the European Commission funded ACCESSanitation and SURe Water 4 Africa projects.
