Liberia WASH Consortium Joint Mission
Following over a year of planning, a series of high level meetings and lot of hard work and discussions, Liberia hosted a Joint Mission to shape, drive and galvanize support for the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector in the country. This was a real collaborative effort, under the global partnership of Sanitation and Water for All, bringing together key decision-makers in the water and sanitation sector including Government of Liberia officials, donor representatives and civil society organizations from both Liberia and abroad. Amongst others, USAID, the African Development Bank and the Dutch Government, all current and future key players in the sector, sent high-level delegations from their headquarters, underlining both the significant expectations and commitments to this momentous event.
The participant’s hard work and dedication was rewarded as the meeting culminated with the President of Liberia, Goodwill Ambassador for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Africa, coming in person to receive the draft compact and commit her government’s support at the highest levels to address the issues highlighted and review the practical recommendations being made.
