African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW)



African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) is a Pan-African Intergovernmental Organization which was formed in 2002 in Abuja Nigeria, primarily to promote cooperation, security, social and economic development and poverty eradication among member states through effective and sustainable management of the continent’s water resources, and provision of water supply and sanitation services.

In response to the mandate entrusted to AMCOW by the Head of States and Government summit at Shame el Sheikh in 2008 to monitor progress and report annually on the status of water and sanitation sector in Africa, AMCOW with the financial support from AWF, developed a web-based Pan-African water and sanitation sector monitoring and reporting system also referred to as WASSMO.

The WASSMO is a harmonized online system for monitoring and reporting on the status of water and sanitation sector across the 55 member states. The member countries designate an M&E focal person who is tasked with the responsibility to coordinate data collection and upload, for their respective countries. AMCOW has produced a series of water and sanitation sector reports over the years. In December 2018, the AMCOW Secretariat engaged services of two IWRM experts to review the previous WASSMO report – the 2018 Africa water and sanitation sector monitoring report, which is the second report that utilized the web-based monitoring and reporting system. It is against this background that AMCOW plans to undertake a comprehensive review of the WASSMO framework, and seeks to hire a technical expert(s) who will carry out specific tasks as outlined below.
