Egypt has won a seat at the World Water Council (WWC)'s Board of Governors, a statement released by the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation on Saturday read.

The seat is a recognition of Egypt's contributions to addressing issues of water resources management at international forums as well as its efforts during the 1st Cairo Water Week which took place on October 14-18.

The World Water Council is an international multi-stakeholder platform organization whose mission is to mobilize action on critical water issues at all levels, including the highest decision-making level, by engaging people in debate and challenging conventional thinking.

The Council focuses on the political dimensions of water security, adaptation, and sustainability.

The ultimate authority of the World Water Council is the General Assembly of Members; they are governed by its Constitution and by-Laws.

The General Assembly elects and appoints a maximum of 35 members to the Board of Governors in accordance with the Constitution and by-Laws.
