The ARUA Water CoE aims to be a centre for innovative and progressive research, which focuses on the African response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Water plays a vital role in ensuring equitable, stable and productive societies and functional ecosystems. Hence, the United Nations recognised ensuring sustainable management of water and sanitation as one of the seventeen sustainable development goals (SDGs) (i.e. Goal 6) (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/). The CoE recognises that water is the key thread and catalyst to also realising the remaining sixteen SDGs in Africa.
The ARUA Water CoE Hub is based at Rhodes University and the CoE partners include Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia; Makerere University, Uganda; University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; University of Rwanda, Rwanda; University of Lagos, Nigeria; Cheikh Anta Diop University, Senegal; University of Cape Town, South Africa; University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
