At the dawn of a new millennium, Africa finds itself at a critical juncture. It is at a point where it must choose between being marginalized and being integrated into a fast evolving global economy spurred on by recent advances in information and communications technologies. In the event, African leaders have chosen the second option. They have unveiled a New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD). This is a bold and unprecedented initiative. However, the success of this bold initiative would depend upon the extent to which Africa's human, economic, technological, and natural resources can be applied to this new vision. Thus this is the time for all sectors in Africa to consider the role they can play in this new and bold initiative. This paper is about how water can help.
