The Local Organising Committee of the SADC Water Week in Tanzania has appointed TRUYA G/Secretary Mr Emanuel Alfred as the designated National Focal Point to lead in a scoping study to provide a situational analysis that includes a detailed outline of role players involved in youth involvement in the environment, water and sanitation sector at the country level. Congratulation for such an appointment.
This year, 2015, the SADC Water Division working together with Member States will be holding National Water Weeks in all countries of the region. Among other activities lined up on the programme of these national water weeks will be national youth water fora. These fora are envisaged to bring together youth stakeholders, at the national level, to work together in mapping the way forward for youth involvement in the water sector within the country. The national youth fora are to draw upon the draft SADC Youth Strategy, the RSAP III, the AMCOW Policy and Strategy on Mainstreaming Youth in the Water and Sanitation Sector and the AMCOW Triennial Plan as well make input into the formulation of the SADC RSAP IV.
