Progress on Tracking Financing to WASH (TrackFin Initiative)

This event will showcase country experiences with tracking financing to WASH under the UN-Water GLAAS – TrackFin initiative. The objectives are to establish a globally accepted methodology to track financing to WASH at national level, so as to improve our understanding of financing in the WASH sector. This methodology will help with strengthening national systems for the collection and analysis of financial information for WASH sector policy-making and programming.

The TrackFin initiative was officially launched at the 2012 Stockholm World Water Week. Since then, a global methodology has been developed and countries have been testing its applicability to their particular contexts. Countries will report on progress and learnings in the context of adapting the proposed method. Through a panel discussion, country experts along with UN-Water members and partners will engage audience members engage audience members to discuss the challenges, opportunities and benefits relating to finalizing the methodology and overcoming practical country constraints.
