The purpose of the meeting is to advance the development of concrete proposals to prevent and resolve water-related tensions internationally. The event will be opened by the Senegalese President H.E. Macky Sall, and will provide multiple opportunities for exchanges between panelists and regional actors. An audience of about 300 people is expected at the opening ceremony on 5 April at the King Fahd Palace in Dakar, including representatives of the diplomatic corps.
Two main themes will be highlighted during the meeting: i) financial incentives for trans-boundary cooperation; and ii) the protection of water infrastructure against violent conflict and terrorism. In this context, nearly 50 agencies and think tanks are invited to exchange with the Panel at the head office of the Organisation pour la Mise en Valeur du Fleuve Sénégal (OMVS) in Dakar on 6 April.
