Abstract:This report is based on data collected from 40 African countries responding to a questionnaire circulated by UN-Water as part of a global survey to determine progress towards sustainable management of water resources using integrated approaches. The report focuses on the status of the management of water resources in Africa, identifies current barriers to progress, and makes recommendations for future action. Furthermore, it provides a first step towards a permanent monitoring and reporting framework on both the state of Africa's freshwater resources and their contribution to development.
