    The “Water for Africa” Initiative stems from the Ministerial Declaration known as “The Rabat Call to Action” launched during the International Conference on Water and Climate held from 11 to 12 July 2016 in Rabat. In order to implement the Rabat Call, the Kingdom of Morocco launched the Water for Africa (WfA) Initiative in partnership with the World Water Council, the AfDB and the WB at the 22nd Conference of the Parties of the UNFCC (COP 22) held in Marrakech from 7 to 18 November 2016.
