A little About Who we are

The African Civil Society Network on Water and Sanitation (ANEW) is an autonomous Africa- wide platform which aims to ensure that the diverse voices of African civil society organizations are represented and heard in the development and implementation of policies and plans on water and sanitation across the continent. ANEW promotes dialogue, learning, and cooperation on water and sanitation issues in Africa and provides a platform for sharing and coordinating voices of its members, who include civil society organizations and academia

The core of ANEW’s position in the WASH/WRM policy sector is the potential and current role that it plays in linking and building capacities for policy formulation and implementation at the national and pan-African levels. This includes facilitating an information exchange mechanism. All its member organizations rightfully expect improved advocacy ability and enhanced project implementation as a result of their membership with ANEW.

ANEW enhances strength through partnerships
