After the success achieved in phase 1 of the GAPWAS (German-African Partnership in Water and Sanitation) program, implemented by German Water Partnership (GWP) within AfWA, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs, Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany approved a second phase of the program covering the period 2023-2025.

The objective of the project is to strengthen the institutional framework of water and sanitation in Africa so that better water and sanitation services are provided to the African population.

The planning workshop for this new investment was held from December 13 to 15, 2022 in Abidjan and brought together key AfWA staff led by the Executive Director, Mr. Sylvain USHER. This workshop was intended as a framework to review the progress of the first phase and to define the priorities and activities planned for the second phase.

At the opening of the workshop, Mr. Sylvain Usher thanked the project team for the good collaboration during the first phase and wished that it would be the same during the second phase. He also expressed his satisfaction with the project's positive impact on the Association and invited his collaborators to get involved in the implementation of Phase II.

For her part, Marie-Louise Chagnaud,  GAPWAS project coordinator, congratulated AfWA for obtaining the funding renewal and advocated for collaborative work to ensure success.

It should be noted the German-African Partnership for Water and Sanitation is a cooperation project between the African Water Association (AfWA) and the German Water Partnership (GWP), financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and supported by sequa gGmbH.
