The Mano River Union has concluded a week-long workshop on transboundary cooperation and water governance at the Corina Hotel in Monrovia, Liberia to foster collaboration among member countries in protecting the sub-region’s water resources, and manage water governance.
The workshop brought together policy makers, security chiefs, community leaders, and technical experts in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Water Resource Management sector, to discuss a cohesive plan in managing water as an essential natural resource, and is very important that we add our bit to the discussion. The Director of Hydrological Services-Geo. Mohamed S. E. Juanah, and our Director of Legal, Regulations and Outreach-Abu Bakarr Iscandri Conteh Esq. were part of the Sierra Leone delegation at the meeting, with other top officials from the Ministry of Water Resources, Government of Sierra Leone, and MRU ecosystem conservation and international water resources project staff at National Protected Area Authority and Conservation Trust Fund.
The event was organised with support from the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
