waterforcitiespicWorld Water Day was celebrated on March 22 to focus attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This year’s conference focused on “Water and Urbanisation”.

As the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) joined UN-HABITAT and UN-Water in co-organizing World Water Day 2011 in South Africa, SADCs Water Division commissioned IPS a special newsletter to highlight the management of urban water challenges in the region “Water for Cities: Responding to the Urban Challenge“.

The publication was produced by IPS Africa on behalf of SADC and GIZ for the ‘Southern Africa Water Wire’ project, which provides in-depth coverage of water-related issues, linking water to economic development, social well-being and environmental protection. Visit the Southern Africa Water Wire for the latest updates.
