“Water security is at the heart of our global development challenge”, said GWP’s new Patron, Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as she spoke at Africa Water Week 2014 in Dakar, Senegal.

The Liberian President expressed her support of a dedicated Water Goal in the post-2015 development agenda, stressing that this year is a crucial year to raise the issue of water around the world.

President Sirleaf is co-chairing the joint GWP-OECD Global Dialogue project, which includes worldwide discussions on water. In her speech, the President brought up the recently completed national consultations on water, which were facilitated by GWP. She said the results from these demonstrate a very strong support for a Water Goal at country level.

President Sirleaf was addressing the Water Ministers of 32 African countries in the opening session of the AMCOWGeneral Assembly.
