Hakainde Hichilema Launches Zambia Water Investment Programme
Today we took part in an African Union Summit Side Event; ‘The International High Level Panel on Water Investment For Africa’, from which we also launched the first ever ‘Zambia Water Investment Programme’.
The theme ‘Transforming the Investment Outlook for Water Security and Sanitation in Africa’, underscores the importance of the water sector and the significance paradigm shift it is drawing from across the globe as a critical life and death component to humanity, animal and plant life.
We reminded the delegates that we have a fundamental duty to generations to come, by acting responsibly over water management and that we must never take the water sector for granted. We implored fellow leaders to exercise the necessary political will, by supporting the Continental Africa Water Investment Programme in order to respond to the shortfall in delivering water investment on the Continent.
President of the Republic of Zambia.
