Vice President, Inonge Wina says with Africa’s projected growth over the next decades, water, food and energy will become one of the key economic mix for meeting the needs of growing cities and food requirements of large populations.

The Vice President notes that this calls for innovative and sustainable ways of water usage as part of Africa’s economic development.

Mrs Wina was speaking when she officiated at the Zambia Water Forum and Exhibition which is looking at harnessing water for social and economic benefits.

And Minister of Water Development, Dennis Wanchinga has called on the water sector to work with Government to ensure 100 hundred percent domestic water supply and sanitation coverage in both rural and urban areas.

Dr. Wanchinga says this is in a bid to improve the livelihood of Zambians and avert outbreaks of waterborne diseases such as cholera.

Meanwhile, German Ambassador, Achim Burkart underscored the importance of water as a human right and a prerequisite for many crucial economic activities.

And Chairperson of Zambia Water Forum and Exhibition, IMASIKU NYAMBE asked the Vice President to be patron of the Forum citing the importance she attaches to challenges of water.
