Youth Engagement

The GWPSA was engaged in the setting up of water youth networks in the region - an activity that falls under the SADC/ AMCOW support to mainstreaming water governance issues in the water sector. The setting up of the networks is a building block for Global Water Partnership (GWP) where youth integration is viewed as a cross-cutting strategy area. After realizing that when given the right opportunities, youth can be effective drivers for change in their communities, making significant and long-lasting contributions to all areas, including sustainable development and water resources management, GWP launched its Youth Engagement Strategy at Stockholm World Water Week on the 25th of August 2015.
