Worried by the dearth of potable water in many regions of the world and the growing threat to fresh water supply by climate change, the Melody for Dialogue among Civilizations Association (MDACA) and Africa Leadership Forum (ALF) are organising a regional conference on water. The conference, aimed at raising public awareness about the issue, will be held at the ALF secretariat in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria from 30th November to 1st December, 2011.
The theme of the conference is “Water: The Regional Challenge of Our Future” while the Keynote address will be delivered by H.E Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR (Former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria).
The event, which is supported by UNESCO, features a special performance by the queen of drums, Ara.
Although it is open only to selected participants, we hope that the general public will engage in the discussions via our internet social networks. Interested members of the public can follow us on twitter: @alfpublications and @melodydialogue. You can also use the hashtag #water4africa to contribute to the discussions before, during and after the conference. What’s more, you can follow our dedicated tumblr account: melodydialogue.tumblr.com for images from the event and more.
