The 2030 Joint Agenda for Urban Water Resilience in Africa is a co-developed agenda by a growing consortium of partners — including water sector stakeholders, practitioners/experts, and city and national partners — that aims to coordinate, align, harmonize and scale a diverse set of existing efforts, solutions and capacities into unique cooperative value add propositions.

WRI and Reos Partners, with support from BMZ, have embarked on a scoping process for the development of the Joint Agenda and are now excited to welcome endorsers and partners with the aim of continuing to advocate for and implement the agenda together.

We welcome all those who wish to join in endorsing the principles and priorities embodied here, recognizing that how organizations evolve practices to enable urban water resilience in Africa will differ.

If your organization is interested in endorsing the Joint Agenda, please contact Smita Rawoot and Hellen Wanjohi.
