Includes virtual keynote address, panel discussions, and breakout sessions
The conference—the theme of which draws its inspiration from the 2020 launch of the United Nations-affiliated Sanitation and Hygiene Fund—will bring speakers from across the finance sector to address the modernization of traditional funding sources, as well as the innovations needed to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for all.
The conference will place significant emphasis on solving WASH inequities in particular, so that no one is "left behind" on the path to 2030. Speakers will address topics including multi-donor trust funds, domestic resource mobilization, social impact investing and microfinance, and cryptocurrency, among other areas and their important role in accelerating progress toward universal WASH access.
The conference organizers intend for this year’s conference to be part of the 9th World Water Forum’s "On the Road to Dakar" initiative, with plans to present a summary of the proceedings in Dakar, Senegal in March 2022.
