I’m looking forward to serving a global network that has a lot of reputational capital because of the unusual nature of the way it works – ensuring that the voices of water at the local level links to and informs global insights.

Pablo Bereciartua, GWP Chair

2022 was a very fruitful and symbolic year for all the actors of the water sector in West Africa when, for the first time, we hosted the World Water Forum in our region mobilising nearly 13,000 participants despite the challenges of the Covid-19 health pandemic.

Abdoulaye Sene, Chair of GWP Regional Chairs

We must take action on water now. Invest more in joint initiatives, new technologies, and nature-based solutions; coordinate more among governments, development agencies, and the private sector; and make data widely available for decision-making.

Darío Soto-Abril, GWP Executive Secretary and CEO (2022)
