    Tunis, 31May 2011 –The Africa Development Bank is hosting a panel discussion in the context of the 2011 African Development Bank Annual Meetings to discuss progress and challenges in the water and sanitation sector in Africa, and ways to address the critical financial gaps, largely responsible for the slow pace of progress of many African countries to meet their ever increasing water and sanitation needs.
    You are invited to attend this event. Details are as follows:
    Date Wednesday, 8 June, 2011
    Time 16:30
    Venue LisbonCongress Center, Lisbon Portugal

    The Panel:
    • Mr. Michel Camdessus [keynote speaker] Honorary Governor of Banque de France. Former Managing Director of the International MonetaryFund (IMF)
    • Minister Edna Bomo Edith MolewaMinister of Water Affairs, South Africa. President of African AMCOW
    • Minister Bruno Jean-Richard ItouaMinister, Energy and Hydraulics of the Republic of the Congo
    • Mr. Gérard Payen President of the International Federation of Private Water Operators (AquaFed). Member of the UN Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation

    The event will be moderated by Mr. Komla Dumor, news presenter for the BBC’s international news channel, BBC World, presenting BBC World News and Africa Business Report.
    The Issue: The investment required to meet Africa’s water needs is estimated at US$50 billion per year for each of the next twenty years – the current financing is largely insufficient and needs to be urgently addressed by governments. Inaction is expected to adversely impact food security, health, and energy on the continent.

    The discussion is meant to help raise awareness of the issue among an audience of African Finance Ministers attending the Annual Meetings and to lobby for their urgent action, as well as to keep the public informed.
