Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Water Institute at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) hosted a Regional Workshop for Western Africa on

to connect with other professionals working in the region and share their experiences on HWTS
focusing on topics such as: policy and regulatory frameworks, integration, implementation,
