Slovenia’s annual high-level Africa event seeks to improve policy outcomes for citizens in Europe and Africa based on mutual understanding and strengthened cooperation between the two regions.

The event is co-hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia, the Chatham House Africa Programme and the European Commission.

Expert discussions at the conference examine collaborative links between Africa and Europe in accelerating progress on a comprehensive approach to water that contributes to the peace-development-humanitarian nexus.

This resource is critical for socio-economic development, stability and the protection of ecosystems everywhere, but competition for water is increasing as populations grow and the consequences of climate change take effect. Sustainable Development Goal 6 aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Three years into the Decade for Action on Water for Sustainable Development, expert discussions at this conference examine avenues through which African-European collaboration can foster greater progress towards and effectiveness of SDG 6.

The conference will be broadcast live on this webpage, on the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs webpage, and on the Africa Programme Facebook page.
