The latest podcast from Global Waters Radio features a conversation with both Dr. Canisius Kanangire, Executive Secretary of the African Ministers’ Council on Water, and Richard Rapier, Chief of Party for the USAID-supported Water for Africa through Leadership and Institutional Support program.

Dr. Kanangire has served as Executive Secretary of the African Ministers’ Council on Water, better known by its acronym AMCOW, since September 2016. AMCOW is a Specialized Committee for Water and Sanitation for the African Union, and Dr. Kanangire has used his position to help align the efforts of more than 50 top water officials from across Africa in their push for improved water and sanitation.

Our second guest, Richard Rapier, has over 15 years of experience in the water, sanitation, and hygiene sector, as well extensive experience with regional and national water institutions across Africa. Today, he leads the Water for Africa through Leadership and Institutional Support program, better known by its acronym WALIS, which has recently collaborated closely with AMCOW to help create its continent-wide strategy for improving water and sanitation between now and 2030.
