I’m currently in #Japan,attending the 4th Asia-Pacific Water Summit, together with other high-level delegates including heads of states and representatives from international organizations in the Asia-Pacific region to discuss various water-related issues. #APWS @JapanGov

By achieving #SDG6, we amplify, exponentially, our ability to achieve so much more than the #humanrights to water and sanitation.
We enhance our chances of eliminating inequalities, supporting healthier lives, achieving gender equality – and combatting climate change.

Achieving #SDG6 is a golden opportunity that needs to be seized,to make it all possible.
The fact that this agenda is not yet receiving the prioritization it demands, is troubling. Especially as we’re talking about a fundamental human rights. Legal obligations. @JapanGov

Did you miss this week's #WASHDriversHangout with @Temple_Oraeki? No worries. Here are the highlights.
A Society is only as healthy as it's most vulnerable member. Access to water in unequal, yet we're all vulnerable @NGRPresident @sanwatforall @ClimateWed
According to @WaterAidNigeria, over 50 million Nigerians lack access to clean water. #handwashing is an impossible task for majority these. @Temple_Oraeki shared some #palliative measures to make water a priority. #WASHDriversHangout #coronavirus #Sdg6 #leavenoonebehind
#Covid_19, especially the emphasis on hand washing, is offering developing countries an opportunity to restore/invest in public water systems. This is a huge project, but NOW is the time to ACT. #EndWaterPoverty #ClaimYourWaterRight #COVID19Response #SDGs #Sdg6 #Water

1/ The water crisis in Harare has reached alarming levels. A cholera or typhoid outbreak is imminent. There seems to be no political will to fix the water crisis in Harare. #FixOurWater #SDG6

"Kunzvi Dam project to begin this year - Zimbabwe Situation"…
2/ Since 1996, the Kunzvi Dam project has been on the cards until we got into this water crisis because of poor planning, incompetence, corruption and laissez faire approach to critical issues that affect livelihoods. Water is a fundamental human right. #FixOurWater #SDG6
3/ @MthuliNcube allocated $259million to the construction of Kunzvi Dam in the 2020 budget. I demand to know if those funds were remitted to the relevant authorities for the work to commence & to know why the project hasn't commenced yet? #Water is life!

How Africa can leapfrog the world’s stagnant water paradigm - @KVairavamoorthy (1/n)

In 15 years, the number of working-age Africans will eclipse that of the rest of the world combined. In three decades, one in every four humans will be African. @AfWA_AAE @IWAHQ

By 2030, increased literacy and web access will fuel vast pools of latent talent to push 43% of Africans into middle and upper classes, with household consumption reaching $2.5 trillion. #RisingAfrica @AfDB_Group

Volatility and stress undermine the decades-old dominant ‘western’ paradigms for water storage, use, allocation, sanitation, disposal and treatment, even as Africa’s families, firms and farms compound unprecedented thirst.

This is Zokutu community on the outskirts of Kuje Area Council in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory, #Abuja. With approximately 3000 people living in this community, this cave is the only source of water – drinking, bathing, laundry

#ZokutuNeedsWater #GlobalGoals #SDG6
The total absence of drinking water in #Zokutu community attracted the @mediaforcc team to visit and tell the first-hand story of #WaterPoverty experienced.

#ZokutuNeedsWater #GlobalGoals #SDG6 #WASH #WASH4All #LeaveNoOneBehind
With poor road network, limited telecommunication access & mud houses, the level of development in #Zokutu is less than basic; more severe is the zero access to drinking water resulting in illnesses & deaths.
