This event brings together several catalytic organizations and initiatives to discuss the power of partnerships in accelerating stewardship outcomes. With a shared vision on how water stewardship can contribute to water security, these initiatives are increasingly exploring mechanisms for collaborative and concerted action, with the aim of scaling up impacts.
The event, aligned with the overall World Water Week theme of water, ecosystems and human development, aims to present country-level examples of water stewardship networks and the synergies established across stakeholder groups, discuss how innovative financing models can drive sustainability of solutions, identify key factors for the effective design and delivery of programs, with a focus on scale, and develop a joint action plan for further collaboration to enhance the impacts of stewardship initiatives.

Though less than one-third of Africa’s hydropower potential has been realised, today’s growing need for power is challenged by water scarcity, and must be managed sustainably. This event explores how various water stewardship approaches can add value to existing models of hydropower development and operation.
This event includes a one-day conference as well as a series of pre- and post-conference workshops that provide additional insights and in-depth dialogue on specific themes. There will also be a field visit to a hydropower facility in the region.
