In partnership with in-country universities, nonprofits, and law firms, we are creating the first pan-African water law platform. Creating RENEWAL will allow citizens and stakeholders to determine whether and how effectively their laws and policies are advancing water security and will enable collaboration and innovation in law.

What does it take to achieve water security? Through our Water Security Challenge we are developing a practical, results-oriented strategy that can help guide countries create an enabling environment for water security. This strategy will identify what is necessary to achieve water security and measures for determining success.

In partnership with the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) and the World Health Organization (WHO) we are drafting Africa Sanitation Policy Guidelines that will help to drive advancement of SDG 6, the N'gor Commitments, and national goals for improving the quality of and access to sanitation.
