CWP Benin holds board meeting

The Country Water Partnership of Benin held on Friday 26 February 2016 the meeting of its Boards. The context is marked by a drastic reduction of finances due to the suspension of the funding of the Pluriannual support programme to the water and sanitation sector and the IWRM institutionnal progression in Benin.

This situation was pointed out by the Chair of the CWP, Mr. André TOUPE in his opening speech streesing that more stakeholders are engaging in the promotion of IWRM in Benin. This calls on the CWP to reposition itself in order to find the strategic frame of watchdog on the governance of the sector in compliance with the principles of IWRM in policies, strategies and development programmes both at national and local levels.
