WATAC, The West Africa Techical Advisory Committee, is currently being set up as an arm of the global Technical Advisory Committee of the Global Water Partnership, operating at the regional level. The aim of WATAC is to support the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management practices and cross-sectoral dialogue at all levels in West Africa. WATAC is a professional body comprising of experts drawn from the region.
