AfDB jointly supervises the Darfur Water Project with UNAMID

AFDB team meets UNAMIDFrom April 4-9, a team from the Sudan Country Office of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the project management staff of Darfur Water Project (DWP) for Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, undertook a Mission to Darfur to supervise the Darfur Water Project. The team was joined by technical staff from the United Nations African Union Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). The objective of the mission was to determine the progress in the implementation of activities, including rehabilitation of priority works, water sector investment study and community training workshop on sustainable water resource management.
