AWJN Launches a Water Justice Mapping Project

The Africa Water Justice Network is embarking on a new research initiative. As is well known, access to clean and safe water is a fundamental human right, yet across Africa, millions continue to grapple with water injustices and challenges, compromising the dignity and well-being of our communities.

In our ongoing pursuit of water justice, we are excited to announce our new project: “Mapping Water Justice Struggles and Water Challenges in Africa.” This initiative aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of water equity and justice across the continent. We firmly believe that understanding the scope of the problems we face is the first step towards addressing them.

Our Objectives

  1. Assessment and Documentation: The primary objective of this initiative is to assess and document key water justice struggles and challenges in African countries. We aim to create a comprehensive database that highlights the key issues of equity and justice in the water sector.
  2. Advocacy and Awareness: By identifying the specific struggles faced by different regions, we hope to work with our members in respective countries to raise awareness and advocate for necessary policy changes and improvements in water governance.
  3. Network Building: We envision this project as an opportunity to strengthen our network by encouraging knowledge sharing and collaboration among AWJN members. By pooling our experience and expertise, we can work together to develop solutions to water justice issues.

Your Role

Members of the Africa Water Justice Network are invited to actively contribute to this initiative.
