New training programme on international water law in Africa

The Global Water Partnership (GWP) has entered a partnership with the University of Makerere (Kampala, Uganda), the University of Dundee (Scotland), the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the African Network for Basin Organizations (ANBO) to train government officials across the continent in international water law over the next five years. The programme started on 3 August 2015 with a first course of a three-day duration that was conducted at Entebbe, in Uganda. The programme is intended for practitioners and professionals from regional basin organizations and government agencies who have a role in negotiating, drafting or reforming treaties and legislations, planning, and decision making on transboundary waters.
