PACO NEWS : NBA: members of parliament sensitized to water-related issues
From 27th to 30th October 2017, IUCN participated in Ghana in a high level advocacy with parliamentarians and Ministers from member States of the Niger Basin Authority (NBA). IUCN is supporting NBA, through PAGE as part of the partnership agreement, for sensitisation of water stakeholders, and particularly parliamentarians and responsible Ministers on the Niger Basin's Water Charter.
Through this conference, NBA wished to mobilize parliamentarians and responsible Ministers from the basin to take ownership of the Niger Basin's Water Charter. This meeting also made it possible to establish the parliamentarians' network on the water charter in order to advocate for the basin with all national and international bodies.
