Africa Water and Sanitation Local Authorities Network
  • Africa has 9% of global freshwater resources, but 15% of the global population.
  • Almost 20% of Sub-Saharan Africa relies on a water source that is more than 30 minutes away from the household.
  • 26% of Africa's population (244 million) has a piped water connection on their premises.
  • Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for over a third of the world's 884 million people who still do not get their drinking water from improved sources.

AWASLA Dialogues

AWASLA participants and associates will meet periodically at regional conferences and workshops. These meetings, known as the AWASLA dialogues, will provide an opportunity to guide the strategic direction of AWASLA, exchange knowledge and good practice and enhance collaboration and engagement between Network participants. The AWASLA dialogues provide an interactive platform for debate, aimed towards facilitating constructive discussion, identifying emerging priority challenges and exploring innovative solutions to urban water and sanitation issues.
