...The Second African Conference on Sanitation and HygieneAfricaSan+5was held in Durban, South Africa from February 1821, 2008, with firm resolutions to place sanitation and hygiene at the top of the development agenda in Africa.AfricaSan+5 follows on after the First AfricaSan Conference held in 2002 that helped to formulate a Millennium Development Goal (MDG) specifically for sanitation: to reduce, by half, the number of people without access to basic sanitation and hygiene by 2015. The Second AfricaSan Conference was the climax of a continent-wide process to assess progress, challenges, and lessons towards achieving the sanitation Millennium Development Goal (MDG).During the three-day event, the delegates agreed on an Action Plan that articulates the critical actions to be further developed, funded and monitored by 2010 in order to put Africa back on track to meet the sanitation MDGs. The African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) was mandated to monitor progress against the national plans and report on progress during the next AfricaSan meeting in 2010. The AfricaSan+5 Conference also marked the formal launch of the International Year of Sanitation in Africa.
