On behalf of the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing (MWRWH), the Ghana Water Forum Organizing Committee wishes to announce that the fourth edition of theGhana Water Forum (GWF4)scheduled for this year, 2012 has been postponed to 2013 due to recent national developments.
Meanwhile, the Organizing Committee will be reflecting on past events, reviewing and following up on past communiqués (decision points), to report on progress at the forthcoming forum.
The committee therefore welcomes inputs (suggestions, comments, etc.) from various stakeholders to ensure an improvement over the previous water fora, when subsequent ones are held.
The Ghana Water Forum (GWF) was established in 2009 out of the then Joint Government of Ghana/Development Partners Annual Review Conference with the following key objectives:
§ To create a platform for Ghana’s political leadership, water sector professionals, stakeholders and partners to discuss opportunities and challenges of achieving water security for Ghana’s socio-economic development;
§ To take stock of the status of the achievements of the MDGs in Ghana, reviewing key achievements and challenges and propose strategies and actions for accelerating the achievement of the water and sanitation targets;
§ To build consensus on water security and provide recommendations for consideration at the highest political level;
§ To formulate concrete policies, strategies and actions to accelerate water resources development and the provision of services;
§ To provide a platform for exchange of WASH sector knowledge and information;
§ To serve as a forerunner to the Africa Water Week, where proceedings from the GWF would be presented
The committee will finalise and communicate the rescheduled date and details to you soon. The committee regrets any inconvenience this development might cause.
