The Cameroon Association of Professional Women in Water and Environment (AFPEEC), met on April 25, 2018 in Douala to take stock of its activities. After just a year of existence, it held its first ever General Assembly to which were invited the Directors General of the Cameroon Water Utilities Corporation (CAMWATER) and Camerounaise Des Eaux (CDE), the Regional Delegates of the Ministry of Water and Energy (MINEE), the Ministry of Social Affairs (MINAS) and the Ministry of the Environment, Nature Protection and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED) among others.

Coming from all regions, the members of the AFPEEC honoured this first ever statutory meeting. The agenda of this General Assembly focused on the progress report for the year 2017, the Report on the Women's Forum in Bamako (February 2018), the 2017 financial report, the report of the Statutory Auditors and finally the 2018 Action Plan and Budget.

In addition, AFPEEC members took part in various events and platforms for reflection both at the national and international level. Among others, we can mention: the 17th Meeting of the Parties of the Congo Basin Forest Partnership (PFBC) in July 2017 in Douala; the Women in Africa regional summit in September 2017 in Marrakech and the 2nd Women's Forum on the sidelines of the 19th Congress of the African Water Association (AfWA) in February 2017 in Bamako. AFPEEC also participated in a tree planting operation at the Douala University Campus at Logbessou as well as in an educational chat at the Akwa High School on girl hygiene and sanitation.

For the year2018, the association intends to focus more on sanitation. Actions will focus on awareness raising and garbage collection, capacity building for women in the water, sanitation and environment sectors through training seminars including a workshop on the management of faecal sludge,  visits to sensitive neighbourhoods to implement innovative projects geared towards improving living conditions, visits to the water treatment and purification plants of the cities of Yaoundé and Douala.  One of the major focuses of the AFPEEC 2018 action plan is the implementation of tutoring programmes aimed at young female college students to encourage them pursue careers in scientific fields, particularly in the water and sanitation professions...
