Abidjan – The third High-Level Forum on Water and Sanitation for All is taking place from November 21 to 23, 2013, in Abidjan, organized by the Pan-African Inter-governmental Agency Water and Sanitation for Africa in cooperation with the Government of Côte d'Ivoire. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is an official forum sponsor.  The theme of this year’s forum is to promote vibrant and effective cooperation to accelerate access to hygiene, sanitation and water for all in Africa.

“Access to water and sanitation remains a major development issue in Africa,” said Bradley Wallach, USAID West Africa Deputy Mission Director. “For over a decade, USAID has worked with African governments and the private sector to improve populations' sustainable access to water and sanitation. This forum will allow leaders in this sector to assess current gaps and seek collaborative ways to provide sustainable services.”

In Abidjan last month, USAID launched ProJustice, a flagship justice sector support project for Côte d’Ivoire. This five-year project will improve the functioning of the justice system through a robust training program focused on judicial police, magistrates, and judicial administrative agents. It will improve case management in targeted communities and strengthen the capacity of the Inspector General of the Judiciary and key judicial actors to promote transparency and accountability.
