7. Round Table "Water Cooperation in Africa" in Berlin
The focus of the 7th Round Table was on "Water Cooperation". Since the water does not stop at national borders, a transnational co-operation is necessary. The Tanzanian Minister for Water, Prof. Jumanne A. Maghembe, has given a speech and a detailed presentation. The principle of water cooperation enshrined since 2002 in the Tanzanian "National Water Policy" and is also largely implemented. Tanzania is working, among other things successfully Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda within the Lake Victoria Basin Commission together.
