How can civil society contribute toward achieving water security?

Mohannad Hesham Abouelrouse, founder and CEO of the Egyptian foundation, Life From Water, spoke at the third general session of the Arab Forum for Sustainable Development organised by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) on 23 March 2023, and asserted that civil society can play a role in achieving water security, one of the key Sustainable Development Goals. Life From Water, an Egyptian non-profit organisation with branches in Germany and Canada established, has built partnerships with Egyptian civil society organisations to improve water access in Egypt's Fayoum, Assyut, Sohag and Qena communities. In order to achieve water security, Muhannad emphasised that policy makers need to realise the importance of inclusiveness, data sharing and cooperation between parties as well as the importance of measuring the impact of water policies and projects in the Arab world.
