The side event will have countries call for enhanced water action and renewed commitments and explain their visions, including investment plans and frameworks for transformative water action following the UN 2023 Water Conference, to be followed by a panel discussion on how the international community in collaboration with the International High-Level Panel on Water Investments for Africa and other global organizations can support the realization of such visions. 

The event will focus on national leadership and provide an opportunity for countries/territories like Senegal, South Africa, Germany, Zanzibar, and Zambia which have been visionary in terms of progress in water governance and investments, to showcase their commitments, successes and lessons learned.

The Dialogue will shape principles on responsible governance of water tenure based on country level engagement, as a commitment to equitable access to water for sustainable livelihoods, food security and climate resilience.
