Water and Sanitation Cabinet Secretary Alice Wahome and her Egyptian counterpart Prof. Hani Sewilam recently convened a meeting with officials from the Pan African Centre for Water and Climate Change Adaptation (PACWA) in Cairo.
The purpose of the meeting was to engage in discussions regarding the development of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Kenya Water Institute (KEWI) and PACWA.
The proposed MoU, as highlighted by the Minister of Water, aims to enhance collaboration in various areas including curriculum development, student exchange programs, research initiatives, and the establishment of a constituent college at KEWI to offer technical courses.
Through the formalization of this partnership, the program is expected to gain more strength and attract a broader range of participants.
Dr. Letangule, the CEO of Kenya Water Institute, and Mr. Tarek El-Sayed, the Director of PACWA, actively participated in the discussions, providing valuable insights.
The Ministry expressed satisfaction with the meeting held at PACWA headquarters, deeming it an ideal setting for constructive dialogue and laying the groundwork for a promising collaboration.
