This conference paper was presented at the 33rd WEDC International Conference, Accra, Ghana, 2008: Access to Sanitation and safe water: global partnerships and local actions.Water researchers in developing countries have yet to take full advantage of the funding and\ud collaborative research opportunities presented by the EU Framework Programme. There are a variety\ud of reasons for this, such as insufficient information and a lack of previous experience. The African Water\ud initiative aims to increase the involvement of African water researchers through a range of activities\ud including communication and dissemination, capacity building and development, and complementary\ud initiatives. The project has demonstrated that there is a demand for such sector-specific support\ud activities. However, African Water is a small component of a much larger process of partnership\ud between the developed and the less-developed countries of the world, involving many different European\ud and African organisations working across political, institutional and technical domains, and\ud complementing the wide range of actions already being undertaken
