GWP Caf facilitates the creation and implementation of the Water and Climate Network for young people in Central Africa

The network has been set up and the focal points installed. The charter and statutes of the network have been validated.

The water and climate network for young people in Central Africa known as RECOJAC was created and set up on 16 November 2017 in Cameroon, during a workshop. Organized by the GWP-CAf and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the workshop was attended by young representatives of youth organizations from Central African countries, notably Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Central African Republic (CAR), Sao Tome and Principe and Chad. The overall objective of the workshop was to train young people and facilitate the creation of a regional network to mobilize synergies between youth organizations involved in water and climate in the Central Africa sub-region. During the workshop, the Network's focal points were voted on. The workshop provided a framework for youth capacity building on ODDs (especially Goal 6.1) and IWRM.
